I have been for my first smear today - I thought it would be uncomfortable as I am unable to use tampax (I think I tense up).
However, the nurse was ok, and took her time but I had to ask her to stop because it was painful. She tried again, but I had to ask her to stop again.
TI then started to cry (and am still crying now!), I found a post here where some people said it was painful but it was from last year, so thought I would do a new post.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
I am booked in on mon to try with a nurse who I know - but I feel anxious already :/
If it again is too painful, and I end up in a state, I don't know what I can do :( :(
Has anyone had a similar thing happen to them??
