Best Answer
around 36-37 weeks you have to be tested for strep B so they have to get a sample. It is dangerous to have when pregnant(but rather common) because it can make the baby sick. It takes about 30 seconds for them to get the sample.

i dont know if this is what you are referring to or not.

    PV means Per Vaginal.
    'Per' literally means 'through', so through the vagina would be the meaning of the term...
    I'm guessing it's just a test to check the cervix, for effacement and dilation.
