I went to the doctor recently and had more tests ran–namely a pap smear and an Endometrial biopsy. My sister had prepared me for the worst…I was quite prepared to go through an excruciating amount of pain, invent some new vernacular along the way and possibly come up flying off of the table fists swinging.
To understand my anxiety about this, watch this video…
I will say at this point, it was not as bad as it was made out to be but the speculum felt hot! They apologized for that. To be honest, all I felt was some pressure and that was IT. I did feel some cramping afterward and my ibuprofen took care of that. That could be because of the fact my uterus is probably so inflamed, that wouldn’t make much difference.
I am now waiting for test results. Guys, if your partner is avoiding having this done, get her to do it regardless. It might save her life. This is done a lot of the time to rule out cancers and such and it is not half as bad as she is thinking it will be. All in all, it took about 5-10 minutes tops from prep to finish.
I’ll let you all know what the results show when I get them. Have a great evening!
