  • Do I have to have an internal vaginal examination?
    You do not have to and this will only be performed with your consent. Whilst an internal exam is often the best way of accurately assessing your pelvic floor, there are other techniques that can be employed, eg. external palpation. These methods do not always give as accurate and extensive a picture as an internal examination would normally do. The pelvic floor is much like any other muscle - it can be weak, inactive, tight or overloaded. Like any muscle, to get an idea of if there are any problems associated with it, we ideally need to physically feel it and test its strength and activity. Because it sits internally, such assessment is best completed via an internal examination.
