I was feeling for my IUD today because I am having back cramps pretty bad today- and I noticed that my cervix has some bumps on it on the left hand side- is this normal? I don't feel my cervix much- well infact I only knew what it was because I could feel where the string from my IUD went in- so I am not sure if these bumps are normal or if I should go have them check. I had a pap in May that came back clear.

These might be Nabothian cysts, which are supposed to be fairly common and should not be a cause of concern. If you have a copy of Toni Weschler's Taking Charge of Your Fertility (TCOYF), you'll see the author mentions these cysts a number of times because women who observe their cervix as part of charting their cycle will notice these bumps every once and a while.

I don't think there's any reason to be concerned, especially since you had a heathy PAP recently.

Here's a link for more information:

Hope this helps!
