Cervix

What is Cervix?

The cervix is the inferior, narrow portion of the uterus where it joins with the superior end of the vagina. It is cylindrical or conical in shape and protrudes through the upper anterior vaginal wall. Approximately half its length is visible with appropriate medical equipment; the remainder lies above the vagina beyond view.
