Okay... I found out today Im pregnant.. yeah!! Thats wonderful. However....Upon giving me my va-jj exam today I'm a bit freaked out. It HURT. The doctor couldn't even finish and I had to reschedule. It was embarrasing because I even cried. The doctor could NOT reach my cervix! I couldn't take it anymore. Exams were never that painful. The doctor didn't tell me anything was wrong....she just said I had to come back. IM AFRAID TO GO BACK!! But, I know I have to for the baby..well and for me. (she even used the two smalled speculums). I don't know how I am going to deal with having to get this done to me...specially monthly during pregnancy!!
Has anyone had a painful exam? What is wrong with me???? ;( sooo sad and upset.
hi.. Congrats!!! how far along r u?? I have a wonderful daughter myself... :) when we get pregnant the shape and placements of our uterus and cervix changes and that's probably the reason y u had a lot of pain.. other than that, can't really think of any reason.. pelvic exams shouldn't hurt at all as it could be a sign of some underlying problems and I'm not a pro to actually know specifically what type.. I've always had painful PAP Smears from the beginning.. I could totally feel the OB brushing my cervix.. ur OB jst needs to make sure that everything is all and well for u and the baby.. maybe u can try a long warm bath b4 u go in to ur doc's appt next time to help u relax and calm ur muscles.. hope this helps a little :)
