This is such a great article! In a nutshell — when women need a vaginal exam with a speculum, they insert the speculum themselves. Read the article, and next time you find yourself in that oh-so-wonderful position (feet in here… okay, slide a little bit lower, lower…) you can tell the doctor or midwife that you would rather put the speculum in yourself. After all, it’s your body, and you know best how to make it comfortable!
