Hi, so today i went to the doctors as I have been bleeding a lot on the Depo injection and she decided she wanted to do a smear test. I am 21 and a virgin. so i naturally knew it was gonna be slightly painful and uncomfortable.
The pain was horrible, she tried numerous times but couldnt get it done because of the pain i was in.
I now feel horribly embarrassed, like surely i should have been able to stick the pain? I have literally never felt pain like it and i am now still really sore.
My mum keeps telling me that it's because im a virgin but from my research it shouldnt have been as painful as it was.
i guess im just asking if you think its normal? i am actually so embarrassed over the whole thing. I don't want to leave my room, i literally cannot stop crying.
What do you wish you'd be taught?
