Is it possible for a vaginal speculum to penetrate an 23 year old woman's cervix?

User avatar Dear Vel,
I am not a gynecologist and i don't fully understand your question. A vaginal speculum is inserted into the vagina and can help visualize the cervix.
Anyways, here is a very good link i came accross related to speculum examination.

Hope you find your answer there!
