How can you get your cervix bruised?
A bruised cervix typically occurs due to vigorous sexual activity. This can include penetration from a penis, fist, or an object. Hitting the cervix during intercourse can cause bruising, making it feel tender and sensitive.
A bruised cervix typically occurs with deep penetration. For example, the risk of a bruised cervix usually increases if you’re in the doggy style position. Because the cervix is at the top of the vaginal canal, it’s unlikely for the cervix to be bruised from anything other than sexual activity.
