Yes. I find exams very painful- that said, they didn't hurt any more when my midwife WAS stretching my cervix out with the contractions than when she wasn't.
For the sceptics- if she stretched a little bit with one contraction, I'd go 1-2 cm further dilated with the next couple, and it seemed to make the next contractions less painful. I still don't like it, though...
