Post gyno exam

I'm going for my first gyno exam in a few days.
I have already had an appointment with the doctor where she just asked me some questions about my period and wrote me a perscription for OTC.
I am kinda nervous about having this exam because I don't know what exactly to expect...or how long it would take.
can someone fill me in on what happens?

Hi. I guess you are referring to a Pap smear?
My best advise is not to worry or be nervous. It isn't as bad as you are probably expecting it to be. It generally isn't that bad at all (pain-wise), but you may be a person easily embarrassed.
I had my first Pap smear a few months ago. They made adouble-appointment so there was plenty of time to ask questions beforehand.
It is hard for me to answer, because the process tends to vary quite a bit from country to country. But I can give my experience... if a Pap smear is actually what you are asking about. Let me know.
