Weeeeeeeeeell....I am in a practice of mostly mws and I think maybe one OB. The NP seems to insist on an iternal. And, I think they want to know about the size of your pelvis?
: And see if your cervix is blue and to check for HPV. Even though all my PAPs have been normal.
: I was going to get one before I got pg.
I bled last year and m/c days later. Maybe not related; but, we girls who have m/ced......
She said I could AMA and I'd have to "take the responsiblity."
: She also used the rationale that if it was *so easy to lose a baby that way, women who didn't want their babies would be doing it.
The same answer to sex.
Soooooooo...I've got a call into another practice some mamas here in my area recommended.
My friend in a mainstream OB prac didn't get one til 39 wks! And she was sayin she was sore and spottin, so I'm not sure if I want one at *all!
I was disappointed in my last appt, so I haven't talked about it. I'm due for one next week for an exam. She said at the end I could refuse whatever I wanted. I am going to check out this other practice. *I'm also planning to move during pg, so I will be transfering again anyway.
