Being a registered nurse I can understand the clincial side and also having been a patient with a previous history of CIN 3, I understand a patients reluctance to lie back and with legs open, have an instrument inserted into their vagina. Lack of privacy has to be of major concern, as most of the time patients do not have any covering to protect them, I know this was certainly a problem for me and one I always try to remedy for my patients. I realise most Professionals do try to put their patients at ease, but again some do not. As well, the procedure is often not fully explained to the patient and their concerns or questions answered comprehensively. Making a woman feel relaxed and comfortable during this time may help lessen the anxiety felt during this procedure.
