    Exclamation Would You Like To See Your Cervix If You Could?

    My DP is a Doctor. He was telling me when they learned how to do speculum examinations and Pap smears they were also told by the female "models" that they should always offer their patient a chance to see their cervix

    In over 10 years of being a Doctor he has never asked this.

    If you were asked by your Doctor would you want to see

    I for one and I told DP this that I couldn't care less what it looks like and if I was asked I would go bright red and say "Not a chance in hell"

    P.S Poll to come when I work out how to do it

    Ahhhh a mirror... Yes.. Now why didn't I think of that

    Taking the question more seriously.. I'd probably think it was a bit bizarre if I dr asked me out of the blue if I'd like to see my cervix... I don't know, I've only ever had 1.. I wonder if anyones ever actually been ask, or if all dr's strike that off their list of things to do once they're finished learning

    Hmm.. I actually don't think a poll can be edited once it's been posted, but I'll look into it..

    Our OB was MASSIVE on "getting to know yourself" and I def had a good look.. he was mega shocked that I'd been checking it for ages through TTC. Had a Great idea of what if "felt" like before Preg and was Mega interesting to feel it change.

    Helpful, not so much, otherwise I would have figured out I was in full blown labour "way" earlier

    So YES, been asked and YES had a good perv. was quite cute!! could not fathom the role it has to keep preg safe! It's so unassuming for such a MASSIVE role.

    Sure would

    I would love to see all of my body parts and how they work, why not? I think it all becomes less eww and scary when you know all about it.

    Last time I had one it was at a women's health centre and I saw mine in the mirror. I thought it was facinating. I didnt have aproblem with her asking me at all..it was much more interesting then lying there looking at the ceiling.
