I don't know if I posted this in the wrong place..I'm new here...But I just wanted to know what the cervix does just before menstruation. My cervix is really low and flat right now, and I was just wondering what that means and if that is normal before a period....Thanks so much.

I haven't heard much about observing cervical "flatness," and am not sure really what you mean by that.

But, there are some standard changes the os (the opening of the cervix) makes during each cycle, and it's typical for the cervix in toto to sit lower during less fertile times (like menstruation) than during more fertile times.
