Dear Clarkecharlotte53,

Thank you for your query.

The uterine cervix (neck of the uterus) is the lower, conical portion of the uterus which and protrudes into the top of the vagina. The cervix has a convex surface and has the opening of the uterus (the 'os') and anterior and posterior lips around this opening which will feel like a belly button. Since the cervix protrudes a couple of centimeters into the back of the vagina, your partner will feel that he is hitting some structure inside.

Needless to say, all this is perfectly normal and you should not worry about this.

You may always consult a gynecologist for a routine examination and a pap smear if you are above the age of 20. You also need to consider consulting a gynecologist if you develop discomfort / pain following sexual intercourse, itching, vaginal discharge and so on.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.

Regards
