Has anyone had this happen during a pap smear?

My friend told me that her gynocologist stuck his finger up her anus during her pap smear, without even warning her! He just said, "this might make you feel uncomfortable". Later he told her it was to check for signs of endemitriosis. Has anyone else had this happen? I have had at least seven pap smears and this has never happened to me. I have never heard of this as part of a routine pap smear. It seems a little strange.

when i was pregnant, and then at my 6 week appt, they told me they were going to check me for hemorrhoids, but that is not part of a pap smear.

NO! I have endemitriosis and they have never did that to me! I would have her find another Dr.
