How can you check your own cervix for dilation? Is everyone's fingers long enough to check?

That should be a sterile procedure. No one should do that without sterile gloves. It's risky to introduce bacteria into a dilated cervix.

Mildly off topic..but did u know in the past labor nurses were only allowed ti check a cervix ANALLY? seriously..it was thought too much bacteria could be introduced vaginally and the anal mucosa protected against that. Crazy right!?


Quoting Anonymous:

No haha I just wanna know if I'm dilated.



Quoting OkieOBRN:

Ok.. make sure there is zero dirt under his nails or around his cuticles... scrub. Then cut his nails super short..





Then... dont do it!





Do u think ur in labor?






Quoting Anonymous:

He'll wash his hands lol it'll be ok!



That's what I'm asking you. What should he be feeling for?







Quoting OkieOBRN:

No! Why introduce bacteria? I strongly doubt he knows what your cervix feels like.










Quoting Anonymous:

Should I have mydh check because he would know what feels normal and what doesn't

Yes, but I have a tilted uterus. In a squat position, your uterus opening is usually as far back as your middle finger can reach.

I do bleed sometimes. You're really smart I like you.

Quoting OkieOBRN:

Does his dick have fingernails? Go everywhere his hands do?



When ur having sex your vaginal canal elongates to accommodate a penis.. if he is bumping your cervix it HURTS.. usually your cervix is harder to reach while aroused... and its generally posterior so he wouldnt be hitting the opening anyway...



Pregnant cervix is very vascular.. if he was pounding on it during sex you would be bleeding after a lil




Quoting Anonymous:

Can his dick do all of those things? It's longer than anyone's finger.





Quoting OkieOBRN:

Or cause bleeding... or cervical edema... or rupture membranes with the head not engaged and cause a prolapse....








Quoting Anonymous:

That's dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. It's a great way to get an infection though!!

Quoting Anonymous:

Quoting lovnmy3boys:

no such thing as sterile exam gloves. They carry them in their pockets or have them in tissue boxes on the wall.

So what I felt with two fingers was probably just my normal hole right? I was sitting on the toilet with one knee up.

Some women check their cervix when they are TTC so it is possible for that reason. No idea about checking for dilation other than unless your hands/nails/fingers are clean I wouldn't try it.
