The Cervix?

Ask Glen!

Q. Glen,What is the Cervix?

A.The cervix is a conical shaped passageway that connects the uterus to the vagina. Two types of cells cover the cervix, columnar and squamous. The cervix is about 1 inch long.

What is the Function of the Cervix?
The cervix allows the passage of a baby from the uterus to the vagina during childbirth. The cervical opening widens, called dilation.

Terms to Know
You may hear these terms during exams, Pap smears, or colposcopies:

transformation zone: an area inside the endocervical canal that is a common place for dysplasia to occur in women.
  • The transformation zone is commonly called the "TZ" by doctors and on medical charts.

  • os: The os is a small opening in the cervix that opens to allow the passage of menstrual fluids or the passage of a baby during childbirth.

  • endocervical canal: The endocervical canal is passageway from the opening of the cervix to uterus. During a colposcopy, a doctor may scrape the endocervical canal to collect cells for examination. This is called an endocervical canal curettage, or ECC.
