    Unhappy Pap Smear

    I never recall them being delightful experiences, but yesterday when I got one done, it hurt so bad I had to use every ounce of my will power to stay put -even though I was already climbing the exam table and cursing under my breath (I did do one really loud "F*****' A!", but my INTP doctor didn't seem to care. She's pretty chill and just said, "I know it hurts! Gimme a countdown! 20 seconds! Breathe!")

    I had not had one of these tests done in 12 years, so I was long over due. I even showed up ten minutes late to my appointment due to traffic, but my doctor knew it was a big deal, and said "If you're brave enough to do it today, we're so doing it!"

    It was like having a knife shoved up inside my body. I swear to you - because I have a pain disorder, I can tolerate a LOT of pain and discomfort, but this mess HURT. And it wasn't even a metal speculum. Does anybody else find pap smears so painful?

    The only thing that even remotely made up for that was having cowboy movies on tv when I got home. (Yay, 3:10 to Yuma! Yay, Tombstone!)

    I've not had one that painful. They are always unpleasant and a bit crampy feeling, but that sounds horrible. I'm sorry it hurt so much. You did good being brave.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Do you think they hurt less if you've had babies already? I dunno - I had one male gynecologist who did it and I hardly knew he was there. But that was the only time it didn't hurt like the devil.

    And for the record, those disposable plastic speculums? Epic fail! They hurt just as bad as the metal ones!

    I have to say, the idea that it hurt so much really depressed me for some reason.

    I'm starting to wonder if it gets more painful each time I go? Weird, I know, but my last exam had me gripping the sides of the bench and cursing very loudly. I don't remember my earlier ones being like that at all. :/
