Did Your Doctor Do Internal Exams at Every Visit?

Did Your Doctor Do Internal Exams at Every Visit?

A friend and I are going through our pregnancies together this time. We are due just two weeks apart so it has been interesting to compare our feelings, cravings and discomforts along the way.

When talking about our recent trips to the doctor, she mentioned that her OB/GYN did a 30-second internal exam to check the position of her cervix and does at each check-up. In each of my pregnancies, my doctor has reserved the internal exam for just a few appointments. Some quick research showed me that internal exams were routine a generation ago, but most doctors now wait until the end to do them.

Did you have internal exams at each of your prenatal visits?
