In brief: ???

I don't know where this "checking cervix " fad has come from but it has absolutely no usefulness.
It's very difficult to check your own cervix. Visualizing it would be better than blindly poking around. Most women do not know what it is they are feeling when they try. They often misinterpret what they are feeling. I think it worries women more than it enlightens. Go to your Dr for a proper exam

Wow, this is really worrisome. This could do more harm than good. Please discuss this with a medical professional, esp OB/GYN
