First ever cervical screening at 30 too painful to complete

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm 30 and as i have never had sex, i've left my cervical screening (also due to nerves and anxiety over the whole process) . Went today and the nurse inserted the device to keep me open(forgot the name), which was uncomfortable. However, when she tried to open it, so she could see my cervix, it became far too painful to continue. We tried it again but it didn't work!.

I'm not sure if it's my hypersensitivity (from my Fibromyalgia), because I'm a virgin or something else.

The nurse is going to see if there is anything they can do.

Has anyone else had something similar?
