Its appears to depend on doctor country and individuals.  

I've been checked three times so far  (not for dilation), but for to make sure I'm still closed etc. As I'd a prem bby before. I'm 21weeks.

I think my doctor likes me ;) because I see no reason to check unless there is discomfort or something.  

To check they literally put their gloved finger/fingers into you and feel around :/ not very pleasant
