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.
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.
