    I'm having swabs done in about an hour to check for STDs etc, it's not my first time. But part of the reason I'm concerned is because of pain down there, so it's making me nervous - for the first time I'm going to be in pain anyway PLUS have the nurse inserting various things up me.

    Does anyone have any tips to deal with it, I'm really stressing out....

    i fink the best thing to do is relax. i no its a lot easier me writing it then you actaully trying to be relaxed but im sure the nurse would of seen everything already so you wont be anything different plus im sure if u relax it wont be as bad.
    i bet it will be a lot betta than u actaully think and think about it, at least your going! good luck

    Chill out and think of anything but what's happening. In my experience the nurses are usually really friendly and help take your mind off it.

    And I'm sure you'll be fine, pain down there could be a number of things, not just STDs. Don't stress

    Yeah a friend of mine had them done recently and he said they weren't pleasant but they weren't that bad. He had to have six of them as I'm pretty sure that there is nothing on this world invented that he hasn't done in the bedroom. But don't let this put you off from answering the questions properly!
