Vaginal exams can measure certain things: dilation, ripeness, effacement, station, position of the baby, and position of the cervix.What this equation leaves to be desired is something that is not always tangible. Many people try to use the information that is gathered from a vaginal exam to predict things like when labor will begin or if the baby will fit through the pelvis. A vaginal exam simply cannot measure these things.
