- Feb 6 by kloneDo you mean SVE? (sterile vaginal exam). Or, there's an SSE (sterile speculum exam). Never heard of C over C before.
- Feb 6 by kirsnikityI've never heard of this before. Are you seeing C/C in writing? Sometimes you will see C/C/0, C/C/+1 etc and it means completely dilated/completely effaced/zero station (etc). I have never heard this terminology used in conversation though.
- Feb 6 by worfIn a SVE...it makes sense as completly dilated/completely effaced/0 station...thanks!
- Feb 6 by kloneWeird, I've never heard that before. Usually we just say "complete" or if you live on the East Coast, "fully"
For effacement, we never write "C." Instead, we write C/100/whatever. Or "C/P" if she's pushing
