Is it really painful when gynea check for diliation/engagement? Heard different stories lei... Wondering how "deep" the gynea will go man. Scary!!
Yes, is more uncomfortable then painful....
Oh dear... I cannot imagine the kind of feeling. Now in week 36. I think i'm going to have this check next week
Yes, I agreed its super painful!! The GBS test is ok not painful. but checking for dilation is very painful and may bleed sometimes. Thats what happen to me... I already did 2 dilation check and will have to coninue to be check weekly until I dilate. But I think it also depends on gynae, I have friend that have gynae that is very gentle so they dont't feel pain.
y painful?? not painful at all... seriously. but need to relax... not painful one. GBS even more painful just a long cotton bud like that take a swab only ... dilation also not painful unless your gynae got giant hands hahah... otherwise ask the doc to put extra lubricant pls n take deep breath n RELAX ....
Yes its painful... maybe you are luckier your gynae is gentle. My gynae not as gentle and when he check for dilation he put the finger really deep can you imagine it can be so deep and rough to make you bleed on the spot. Doing GBS test is just a long cotton stick to be lightly swap, similar to pap smear.So its just a little incomfy but not painful.
what is that???hehe..ps new mum here...and only 18y.o...that is y abit blur...
Checking for dilation isn't painful, just a bit uncomfortable. BUT, my gynae stretched my cervix to get it to open up more! THAT was painful!!!
I dont feel is painful,to mi it is more of uncomfortable than painful.
after checking,i cant sit down properly with my butt stick to e chair.
you mean when you r in the delivery room? uh, so far i rmb, when the doc check for me or what, nth seems to hurt, just abit uncomfy. only when they do that swab thingy with that long cotton bud, that hurt somehow.
mine was not painful at all. guess i got a gentle gynae.
it was in the delivery room when he say he gonna stretch my cervix n might be painful, then that was painful (but bearable).
Stretch the cervix??? Was that done only during hospital checks or clinic checks? I'm talking about VE examination in clinics happening @wk 37 normally... As for Hospital checks, I'm going straight for Epidural!!! I guess painless for whatever they do after epidural
but my pap smear was more uncomfortable.. done in msia.. lady gynae... she insterted this metal thingy inside that hold the vagina apart then scrape scrape...
for me is painful & uncomfortable... still remember doctor keep asking me to relax and open leg wider because i get very tense when he do the checking...
but if you can make yourself relax is good because doctor easier to check and will be faster... for me i too tense up.. doctor cant check properly so got to recheck.. so more pain lol.
Looks like depends oh the size of fingers + Hands of nurse/doctor doing the check for you. Gosh....... I have a 1.8m (maybe taller) Gynea!! I guess his hands and fingers are not small either!!!!
my first check was when i was around 36-37weeks. cos of my profession, gynae suspect i'll deliver early. true enuf, i was already 2cm dilated and baby's head already engaged. and he even told me he'll see me that weekend for delivery (saw him at his clinic on thu, delivered early sun morning).
Wow....... Does your job requires you to walk a lot? Mine - YES. walking a lot!!!!
To me i think that it's fine...only a little discomfort after the check...dont worry...
Discomforts more during the check..
After the check would be fine already
