Then she says she is going to see if she can do something to my cervix when I come in-I froze up and said ok. Now I started thinking what is she going to do I had a pap - normal. What is she going to do to my cervix - Lord have Mercy on Me I am sorry but I am scared. I want to laugh to because I keep picturing her putting my tiny cervix in her hand and massaging it and pushing it to the side in order to make room for the catheter - Oh this is just too much for my nerves. What could it be and I tried calling her back but she left for the day.
Wow - I understand how scared you are. I recently went thru something very similar. You should insist that the doctor do this in a surgical setting and under anesthesia. I was diagnosed with a polyp and the doctor tried an endometrial biopsy to get it; then she tried a hysteroscopy in the office to get it. My cervix is small, too. She'll give you Cytotec to take by mouth or to insert into your vagina. That helps to "ripen" your cervix so she can get it. She'll probably also inject your cervix with Lidocaine to numb it up.
Anyway --- the hysteroscopy in the office didn't work either and it was so painful she had to end the procedure. Last week I went to the surgical center and had anesthesia. I was in and out in less than 1 hour. The procedure probably didn't take more than 30 minutes. All went well.
Just insist on having it done under anesthesia. These in-office procedures are barbaric and it's all because the insurance companies insist upon them first before they approve anything surgical.
