Why does anyone need to be wiped front to back and then she applied gel stuff and then the doc came in. wth?? Is the even have way normal. And the nurse was in there for my breast exam.. for what to stare? Yes I have had ultrasound and the prepare u but not for a pap and exam. gross!

  • That sounds weird! I wouldn't go back either.
    I have never had an exam like that. I would call the office and ask what their normal procedure for a pap is, because that just sounds too strange.

  • If you have a male doctor a female nurse is supposed to be tehre for your initial exam.

  • I've never heard of the nurse prepping you like that.
    I can however understand having a female nurse in there while the
    dr is doing his exam.

  • hmm.. well as far as the nurse being in there, its standard for exams of that type because the nurse can testify that you were not sexually abused or so on.
