Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Unless you are trained in the medical field, then I would say no.  It's probably best to leave that to a physician.
It's not going to be exact, but I was taught to find my cervix when I had an IUD.Wash your hands really well, if you are dilated you can get bacteria in there. Squat down some, and put two fingers in your vagina. Reach up and a bit back. you should feel your cervix, its kinda rubbery and feels different than the vaginal walls. You should be able to feel whether there is a space in the middle or not. If you can get a finger in there that is about 1 cm.
