they have a 'thing' that holds your vagina open (that doesn't hurt at all) and they then insert a cotton tip kinda thing to take a sample from from your cervix. While they take the sample it feels kinda like a pressure down there and then you can sorta feel a bit more pressure and a little pinchy feeling (as they take the sample).
then its all over and I never feel any pain/discomfort after. As soon it its done, it doesn't hurt.
I wouldn't even say it hurts, it just abit uncomfortable - kinda like a bad period pain/cramp/pinchy thing combined with a feeling of slight feeling of pressure.

I've always been told by the dr doing it (and moving around a lot has meant I've seen a numbe rof drs) that it should never be PAINFUL. Uncomfortable yes but painful no. They gave always said to make sure I tell them if it is at painful.

I have them regularly. A friend had never had one and at 27 she's had to have a full hysterectomy due to cervical cancer....

I used to put them off, then in 2010 had one due to bleeding between periods. It came back abnormal. Talk about petrifying. I had to get a Colposcopy and they took a biopsy of my cervix...it came back clear, but was a huge wake up call.
Now I plan on having them every two years. Pap smears can prevent cervical cancer, it's so worth it for just a few mins of being uncomfortable every two years.

I'm nealry 35 and never had one. I have discussed it with a doctor and she agreed that the current procedure would be too traumatic to do, so was fine for me not to have it done.
