Omfg so I had planned a good exercise routine for today, since I'm new with my weight loss I try to work out every other day (and hopefully will get to everyday). Well, I had my first time ever appt with the OBGYN and it was fine but I didn't think I would hurt so bad after the pap. I feel rly gross not working out for more than 2 days but my stomach hurts like a mofo rn...does this happen everytime?! No one said it hurts much to me before!

    Ive had some discomfort. I have seen patients get bruised from a pap. Especially after their first one. Spotting is normal also FYI

    I’ve not had lasting pain from a cervical smear either. Different nurses/practitioners can produce a very different experience ‘in the moment’ but I can’t imagine how bad an experience it would have to be to give pain days later! 😱

    Even after colposcopy and cone biopsy (many years ago) I had no persistent pain.

    Definitely talk to your doctor as it may not be connected to your recent procedure but indicative of an unrelated issue.

    For me it depends on the doctor but I've had a lot of pelvic exams because of endometriosis complications. One doctor I'd always bleed and cramp afterward. It's not normal but not exactly abnormal either. Hope you feel better soon!

    I've had horrible cervical pain, followed by what felt like a day or two of bad period pain.

    I wish it was something that they warned you about as an uncommon side effect.
