10 Things To Know About Cervix Penetration
What is cervical canal penetration?
Cervical canal penetration (CDP) is the insertion of anything into or through the cervix. It includes everything from fingers to dildos, but usually involves something inserted into the opening of the cervix itself. A common misconception about CDP is that it’s only done with penises because there are so many things you could put inside your body! However, CDP is not limited to just penises. There have been cases where women have had their vaginas penetrated with various objects. Other common items used include: dental floss
an ice cube tray You may think that these things aren’t going to do much damage, but they can still cause infection if you don’t take precautions!
How does CDP work?
CDP works by breaking down the skin around the cervix, which allows for easier entry of other objects. It doesn’t matter whether those objects are small or large; all that matters is that they fit snugly into the opening. Once inside, they will break down further and eventually exit out of the cervix without any resistance whatsoever.
Is it dangerous?
Yes! And no. There are risks associated with anything having to do with having your cervix penetrated. Any time you put a foreign object inside your body, you are risking infection and/or tearing. You should never do this without a ton of lube and patience! The more patient you are, the better and safer this will be for you.
If the object is small enough, it can travel further into the opening of your uterus and even into your ovaries. If something gets “lost” in there, you’ll need to see a doctor immediately.
The last thing you want is to cause damage that can’t be repaired.
The object may also get “stuck” inside your cervix. If this happens, your options are to leave it in there or go to the hospital to have it removed by a professional.
This will probably require sedation if it’s been in there for a long time.
It may also cause pain or bleeding. The more you use it, the more likely it is to cause unwanted side effects.
The bleeding can be caused by your body’s natural defenses against the object or it can be caused by tearing in the walls of the cervix.
If you start bleeding while doing this or shortly thereafter, you need to seek medical attention immediately. It’s very easy to get distracted if this starts happening.
You can also tear the skin around your cervix without penetrating it directly with a foreign object. You can also tear your cervix directly without penetrating it with a foreign object.
The point is that there are many different ways you can hurt yourself during this activity.
You should never do this if you have any condition that affects your menstrual cycle. You should never do this if you use an IUD.
Even if you’re not menstruating, there will still be a small amount of blood in your cervix just from the act of penetration. This is perfectly normal and not necessarily a cause for concern.
However, if it starts to stain the underwear you’re wearing or causes light spotting throughout the day, you need to seek immediate medical attention. This is a sign of a potential miscarriage.
Unless you’re into that sort of thing, in which case, all power to you.
I guess the moral of this story is, don’t go sticking things up your cervix unless you absolutely know what you’re doing. It’s not as easy as it looks on the movies.
