I had a pat smear today and I am still reeling from the experience. The pain was excruciating and I am pretty tough but this was off the chart. I told the female doctor it was unbearable and she hardly reacted some comment about maybe me being dry. This is not acceptable that any woman post menopause or younger should be expected to endure this amount of pain. It is time the medical profession investigates painless method of pat smear. Women are being turned off the procedure because of this. Has anyone else experienced this. I am 59 years old and have given birth to two children so know pain but this was off the chart.
