Isit compulsory to do pap smear? Anyone has experience doing it? Isit painful? I have seen articles saying it doesnt hurt but im really afraid. I rmb when im in labour the doctor used speculum and checked for dilation. It hurts like hell. I read that there’s also use of speculum and taking swab from cervix for pap smear. Im 1 week pp and 3 more weeks to go for my next appointment and im so scared gynae will be doing pap smear for me!!
