Pelvic Signs





Category: Obstetrics or Midwifery

As early as the first month of pregnancy a faint violet
color of the anterior wall of the vagina just below the opening of the
urethra may be distinguished. In the third month this color has become
purplish and pronounced. This sign is present in eighty per cent of cases.
There is also a more or less marked lividity of the vaginal portion of the
cervix from the first month of pregnancy. Also there is softening of the
cervix as early as the sixth week, and as pregnancy advances the whole of
the cervix is softened.
