Re: Colposcopy. Advice!?
Hello, I just got a colposcopy just five days ago, so I thought I would respond to your post. I am 22, and a total wuss when it comes to medical procedures. And to be honest, it was not a "pleasant" experience...but it was not as bad as I expected it to be. When they were doing the biopsy of the outside of the cervix, I could barely feel it (although I did have a little cramping). However, when they did a biopsy of the inside of the cervix (they don't always do this) it was very painful but only lasted about 10 seconds. My only advise is to take a valium (for anxiety) or maybe some advil before for the cramps (I have been cramping and bleeding a little bit ever since, and it has been about 5 days). Also i brought my I-pod in and listened to music while they were doing it, and that really helped. Hopefully this was helpful! It is all over before you know it.
