Confused - April 21

I just went to pick my husband up from work, and I was talking to a guy he works with and we found out today that his wife and I have the same doctor...well he said "oh, don't let him manipulate your cervix" I was like "what the h__l is that, I've never heard of it.." he said "If the doctor manipulates your cervix, you have a high chance of pre-term labor and only a 25% chance of delivery" has ANYONE else out there heard of a doctor manipulating a woman's cervix??? and if it is so dangerous why do they do it? If the doctor says anything about this to me, I'm sayin HELL NO! anyone else ever experienced this?

I have never heard of it and I can't imagine any doctor being legally able to do such a risky thing without fully explaining it to you. I personally think that guy was full c___p.

What did he mean by manipulating the cervix?? and how did he find out that it could cause pre-term labor and 25% chance of delivery? and why would a licensed doctor do something that would cause all that? something's just not adding up...

Thats my thoughts exactly...I don't think he knows what the hell he's talking about...his wife was put of bed rest about a month ago, and she is due any day now..so maybe it only has something to do with a complication? I've got no clue...but I'm glad I'm not the only one who's never heard this...

i think that guy misunderstood what the doctor said. or if the doctor said something to his wife she got all the info jumbled.

I think maybe the guy meant a cervical sweep which is what doctors do to start off labour in woman that are overdue and do not want to be induced. The cervix is gently manipulated with a finger to encourage labour, start contractions and help with dilation of the cervix.

a doctor should ALWAYS explain a procedure before they do it, and you always have a right to say no.
