Umm I would have liked some warning about that!  It isn’t exactly easy to manually open a cervix.  If she wanted to give you help, I would think she might have given you Cystex (sp?) or something.

Why on earth would she do something like that??? Arent doctors supossed to inform you before they do anything like that??

I’ve never heard of anything like that to “help” you get pregnant…and also it’s very unlikely she’d know if you’re close to ovulating…

I don’t think I would have been comfortable with that. It seems a bit extreme?

I’ve been dilated due to an anatomical abnormality, I was 12. It was the most painful procedure I’ve ever had =( I’m not sure why she dilated you though. I work in gyn sometimes and do lots of paps/leeps/colpos. No one has ever dilated a patient. Can you call and ask?

Well, you can just go at it with the attitude of, “What was the clinical indication for it,” instead of “WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?” She may be more honest that way as opposed to defensive, you know? I can ask the OB doc I work with next Tuesday if you haven’t called by then, if you want.

@Yellow.Clover:  Did you ever find out about this? As I was leaving today, I was like oh, I was supposed to ask her about something and I completely forgot to.

@Yellow.Clover:  Cool! Keep me posted if you need me. I had mine dilated because mine was so small blood was not coming out of it during my regular menstruation… It was backing up inside my uterus and causing pain. I dunno how much of that stayed “more dilated” but I don’t have the problems anymore so I dunno haha.
