Just wondering.

But today I had an exam because I was sure I had an infection [TMI!!] but it turned out to be nothing, do they always check if the cervix is open/closed, even for something as small as that or were they checking for something else?Or is it just something they have to do during an exam. I'm just wondering...

  • From what I remember, they check you when you go for your monthly visit. When it gets closer to your due date, you will go every 2 weeks and then every week and they check you those times too.

  • if you thought you had an infection then they would check to make sure that it wouldnt be able to get past your cervix -
