Hello, I am 37 week 1 day pregnant. My doctor  told me that tommorow she will do my Internal checkup. She told me to prepare mentally. So my question is what is an internal checkup and how will they do it? For what reason they do it? Tell me . thanks in advance... @Dr. Shilpitha Shantappa.

Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr. Payal M pls help

it is just a insertion of fore and mid finger in to the vaginal canal to check the position of fetus.. whether there is descending of head or not, approximate cervicle length, approximate time for labour etc etc.. nowadays, most women dont cooperate for this, hence doctors usually explain before examining.. it will not pain..
