    First Gyno Exam - HELP

    I am a virgin. I went for my first gynocologist exam today and she did the works - breast exam, pelvic exam, rectal exam, etc. It was embarrassing and somewhat uncomfortable (I'm very tight and even have trouble inserting tampons), but other than that it wasn't too bad. However, since leaving the office I have had mild cramps and a feeling of pressure and have felt the need to go to the bathroom quite a bit (sorry for the details, but after the rectal portion, I have felt like I need to poop all day). Besides that, I have been feeling ill - headache, sore throat, fatigue. I'm sure the latter symptoms are completely unrelated to the pelvic exam, but is the cramping and bathroom urge common or is that something to be concerned about?

    As for the urge afterwards mine only lasted a couple of hours and then was fine. If it doesnt pass you might want to call and talk to your dr and explain how you are feeling.

    As for the cramping after the pap smear, that is totally normal. In fact, my doctor always tells me to expect some after she does it, and also says that a little light spotting or bleeding is common as well.
