Don't know if anyone needs this or not, but I found the pictures helpful when imagining my cervix.....

Okay, this was a disturbing sentence

Yeah, I knew they weren't sterile. Unless they have to open up packaging to get them out, they aren't sterile. Fun, eh?

Yet another reason to avoid cervical checks!

The gloves on the wall that are opened aren't sterile. The mw/ob should NOT be using these for cervical checks!!! They should be opening a package and applying sterile lubricant to the glove/package prior to inserting their fingers to check you. Insist on this!!! Doctor's offices/hospitals are dirty places.

When I went into PTL 2 weeks ago, both times they used sterile gloves.

I can't reach my cervix... my finger is apparently not long enough. In this vein, I don't see the reason for an internal exam... if I can't reach it, how will they?
