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

Quoting OkieOBRN:

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:

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:

yes, but those aren't exam gloves. Those are surgical gloves. Often, they touch several other things before shoveing that unsterilised glove up your yahoo.

okay. Just saying what I've seen. I've never seen a nurse get fired over it. They use the purple ones, not the yellow one time use ones except when I delivered.

Why? Dilation won't tell you if you're going into labour anytime soon. 
You can be a fingertip dilater and have your baby today. You can be 3 cms dilated and not have a baby for another week. Dilation tells you nothing.

Is it possible to check for dilation on yourself? sure it is. feel free to goggle it. I just don't see any reason to do it.

Yes, they are sterile exam gloves. I have never touched anything after putting them on other than a wound or vagina. If your nurse or doctor does touch several other things, tell them they will not be shoving the glove in your yahoo.
