The cervix is the lower end of the uterus. It is
located at the top of the vagina and is about one
inch long. The cervical canal passes through the cervix, allowing the
menstrual period and fetus to pass from the uterus into the vagina, and
sperm to pass from the vagina into the uterus. This
website will give you important information on cervical anatomy, pathology,
the cervix in pregnancy, and how a cervical exam is performed. Please check
