That's the equivalent of a dentist saying, "This won't hurt a bit."
"You're going to feel a bit of pressure," or "now this may feel a bit uncomfortable" = PAIN! Horrible horrible pain! Lol. I've been to a lot of doctors and had several minor procedures, and I don't get why they lie like this. It doesn't keep me more calm like I assume they think, it makes me panic that I'm feeling more pain then they said and it makes me scared that I'm in too far to stop now.
i've always understood it to mean it won't hurt. . . for them. so the doctor meant that the scraping would only cause slight cramping for her. every time the dentist says it won't hurt, i punch them in the dick preemptively; for lying to me and to keep them in line for next time.
Well I hope to hell I never have to have one of those. I'll be scared shitless
#75. I was just writing a comment on the same thing. A biopsy is different to a Pap test. A Pap test they use a little brush to collect a few cells from the surface of the cervix. A biopsy is much more invasive and painful. They are actually removing tissue rather than a few surface cells. There are several kinds of biopsy but by the sounds of it, OP had a endocervical curettage, where they use a curette to scrap a tissue sample. Poor Dr Papanicolaous wife had Pap tests as they came to be known, every day for 21 years to collect samples as her husband researched ovulation cycles.
