COLPOSCOPY..I think that's how you spell it

Is there any mommies that have had a procedure called a COLPOSCOPY..it's like a colonoscopy but for your lady part,,I have to get one done in the very near future and am so nervous

    Yes. It's no fun. They will numb it, put some stuff that looks like coffee ground on it so they can see the abnormal cells and scrape away. In my case, there were so many abnormal cells they just cut away all the bad ones while they were down there. Honestly for me,they didn't numb enough, but I'm sure that's because they cut some and only numbed enough for the scraping part.

    Make sure you take somebody with you, you dont want to drive when they are done. I wish i had had somebody to hold my hand (I know how crazy that sounds lol, but it would have been much better to have someone I loved comforting me than a nurse) and drive me home.

    Hugs.

    It's only necessary if a PAP smear comes back abnormal.

      Everything has been fine for 6 years now. A month after I had my colposcopy i got pregnant, ended up losing the baby. I don't know if there is any connection or not.

          That's nice. Distraction can be a wonderful pain reliever
