25. I've had that too
I'm a huge wuss, and horrible with doctors, so half the pain I feel is in my head or the result of me tensing up when I'm supposed to relax. So I'm gonna confess, the colposcopy hurt - like a bad cramp. I'd take some motrin before going in, or at least ask them about that. Not to scare you, like I said, my pain threshold is pathetically low, but I'd rather you get the warning so you take painkillers, rather than go through some needless discomfort.

Once it was done, though, I was fine. I always prepare for any gyno trips by ensuring I have some booze at home for afterwards. I tried to talk my mammography place into installing a keg, and made what I thought was a good case that all us women sitting around making uncomfortable small talk with our backwards gowns from hell would be much happier if they ran a brewery in the joint, but they said no. I plan to work on them some more at my next visit.
