Hi , i got a appointment on 19 December for colposcopy .. i have seen it on youtube.. and it a bit scary and painful.. Did anyone here have experience can share it to me... because im so scared to do it.. any advise from all of you..
I am a guy and so what would I know about "real" pain, but...
I had to do a search to find out what a colposcopy is. OK, I am not likely to encounter that too soon. But on reading several sites (incl https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/colposcopy), they seem to indicate that the procedure should not be painful - a possibility of discomfort if they need to take a biopsy, but not "painful" per se.
From this, I expect that it would not be as painful as childbirth, nephro/ureterolithiasis (kidney stones), pancreatitis, cholecystitis (gall stones), chemotherapy, ...
In my defence for enduring pain I have been through all of the above except for colposcopy and childbirth - I found the pancreatitis to be the worst.
Perhaps have a stiff drink (or two) half an hour before the procedure?
Hugs and best wishes for your treatment. And let us know how it goes.
Hey, yes I had it done years ago. It’s seriously not a problem at all. You just feel a little sore in there for a few days, stings to pee a bit & you get that nagging period pain but that’s it. If you want me to be brutally honest it’ll feel like you’ve had a good session with your partner if you know what I mean😜 & a period pain.
