I had my smear about 6 weeks ago. They have never hurt me before, but this time the pain was so bad I screamed out. When it was finished I got scared cause I was bleeding. For a few days after I was cramping and bleeding. I spoke with a nurse where i work cause I was worried but she reassured me it is normal in some people to experience this. Also she said the nurse could of been a bit rough. Hope this helps
I used to have my Family Dr. do my pap smears...Oh, they HURT! I stopped getting them done. Then I was having vaginal burning and went to my Family Dr. and he referred me to a Gyno. He is much, much better. My pap was fast and didn't hurt nearly as much as before!! I no longer dred paps.
A personal rule for me is to never have pap test done by a man. A man doesn't have what I have and doesn't knwo how sensitive it can be. Not that all woman are sensitive too, but I find men are far worse at that. I had one male Dr. do it and i thought he was scraping my insides out! I never had him do that again.
ew i had like a bloody looking discharge after my last pap smear, it was like the dr was rough when she put the thing in my crotch so maybe that is why.. ew i hate those things they're so uncomfortable. it was only for that one day when i got the pap smear
I didnt experience any extreme pain or cramping during my pap, the only discomfort was pressure associated with the insertion of the speculum. The only time I experienced bleeding was when I had an internal ultrasound.
