  • Well you need to know what your feeling for and a self exam is pretty hard to do alone. The doctor can tell you if not you shove your fingers up there and the more you fit the more dilated you are but you have to know what your looking for.

  • I don't suggest a self exam. You do not want an infection.

  • A nurse told me I was a cm dialated, but ot 5 minutes later the doctor checked and I wasnt. Depends on finger size and experience. Wouldnt check yourself. If you think you might be dialating, ask your doctor for an exam.
