Has this ever happened to you during a doctor exam?

I had my yearly pap recently and during the pap I felt something pinching my buttcheek skin lol. When I told the doctor this several times she said that it was the pap device (whatever it's called) pinching me a little as it closed. In all my years having one I never remember this happening. Has this ever happened to you? Doctor's make me a tad paranoid so I am wondering if that really could have happened? If not, what the heck could she have been doing to me?!

  • Could it have been the end of the table or something? Usually doctors are very professional and in that particular profession intimate parts are not attractive anymore.

  • It's a speculum, and yes, I have been pinched by it. I have ovarian cysts, and I am constantly getting pelvic exams.

  • Pinching is possible. But if you feel that uncomfortable, maybe its time to switch Dr. As far as women being rough, I think it depends on the woman. Like with all Dr. some times you have to go through a few turkeys to get what you need! Hope this helps. So sorry you had to go through this experience. Whether it was the instrument or not, it still isn't something you want to happen to you. Hope this helps.
