I was asked if I wanted an internal exam today, I thought why not, I'll see if I have dilated, effaced etc. turns out, nothing but she gave me a pad for spotting! I think I understand why people refuse internals, I would have rather not known then end up worrying about blood (never spotted b4 with an internal exam) eventhough I have read it's normal. The spotting was red and medium right away, it's very light brown now, but FYI if anyone is asking themeself the same ? I would opt not to next time :( Anyone else have experience with this?
