Anyone had a colposcopy?

I have to get one done due to HPV (found on a recent pap) and I'm a little worried. I heard they hurt and you can't have sex for 2 weeks after. Anyone had one?

  • The colposcopy doesn't hurt at all really...and you can have sex right away as far as I remember. You might have to wait 24 hours or so. I've had several.

  • I have to have one done, but unfortunately I no longer have health insurance. If I was to go to my ob/gyn without insurance it would cost anywhere between $450-500 out of pocket. so my only affordable option is a regular pap test. and I dont think the public health center does colpo's... otherwise I'd go there...anyone know if public health centers do them??
