    Yeah, they hurt for me also...finger clenching, bite your lip, try not to kick the doctor in the groin kind of hurt. But then I am not one who is known to relax easily either. When I've had manicures, they say, "relax your hand!" constantly - I just can't do it.

    I don't know what's worse: pedicure, manicure or pap?

    They have the same level of discomfort.

    I would think a pedicure would be relaxing... Am I missing something?

    At least they aren't applying nail polish to our cervix. Still feels like they're taking a nail file to it though.

    They are, but I don't relax easily, which is why they scold me . Pap smears are far worse as they are NOT relaxing....and you're exactly not coming out with a pretty design for sandal weather either.

    I don't like people messing with my nails. It's not relaxing at all but I like the results.

    The scrape hurts, or just putting in the speculum hurts? There are different sizes of speculums. You should tell the doctor it hurts rather than trying to be brave. Or get a new doctor. I'm thinking new doctor. Although if you like that one's personality or something about her, give her one more shot. It shouldn't hurt like that.

    There's different sizes? Hmm...that could make sense with my situation, maybe. I've got a good doctor though, she does her best to make me comfortable (even warms it up first so it's not this harsh cold metal thing being shoved inside me). My old doctor was male...that was a bit weird.

    There are two brands typically used, the Graves and the Pederson, and they come in small, medium, and large. The Pederson is narrower. So maybe a Pederson, size small.
