Can most girls touch their cervix with their finger? I want to know if in labor.

Never check yourself: Only a doctor or trained OB nurse should check your cervix, using a special sterile glove. Trying to check yourself can be dangerous - you can introduce bacteria, cause a serious infection, accidentally break your water too soon, trigger preterm labor, or even injury the baby. If you are concerned that you may be in labor, go to your hospital labor & delivery ward to be properly checked. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant, my cervix is totally effaced but not dilated yet.Will I be in labor soon?

I hope not: 35wks is a bit too soon to deliver. If you begin to feel cramping or other signs that premature labor is starting you should contact your OB immediately & arrange to be evaluated. Pre-term labor can be stopped if the process is recognized early enough. Add another few wks & you can avoid a nicu stay for baby. ...Read more

Ultrasound may help: There are many things that could contribute to your complaints. One is a fibroid that is within the uterus, either applying pressure on the cervix or even trying to deliver through it.

Is it true that boys are more painful than girls in labor & delivery?

Is it true that boys are more painful than girls in labor & delivery?

No correlation: The only gendered correlation that we know of is that boys tend to do worse with respect to lung function than girls do if they're born premature; otherwise the way labor goes is up to you and your delivering physician. Gender stereotypes are more painful. ;). ...Read more

Within 3 to 4 weeks : Unfortunately, there is no good way of knowing when labor will occur for you. If you begin having regular contraction every 5 minutes or less apart for at least an hour (especially if they are very painful), you should go to Labor and Delivery. Best of luck and congratulations! ...Read more

What is the name of the thing doctors put inside u to open your cervics when you in labor or it's to start the contractions nd da doctors take it out?

Depends: Probably not used when you're in labor, because the cervix will dilate on it's own in labor . However to start the dilatation process, sometimes a Foley catheter can be used. Also, certain meds are used to start the cervical "ripening" process (ie. Cytotec (misoprostol) ). Another thing that can be used is laminaria --however, this is used typically in non-viable pregnancies. ...Read more

Can i put my finger in a girls cervix?

Can i put my finger in a girls cervix?

Why?: Why would you want to? The cervix doesn't have many sensory nerves so it would be unlikely to be erotic for the woman. Some women have pain. The cervix is there for a reason- to block things, such as germs, from going into the uterus. It is usually closed, but is able to open to deliver a baby. Before you try this, i'd strongly recommend that you talk to your partner about why you want to do it. ...Read more
