First smear test - advice?

Saw the HANX post about smear tests and reminded me I’ve got my first one coming up soon… Any tips or suggestions? I’ve heard some horror stories which have really made me dread it (but will definitely go!)

Hey! I completely get you - I was worried about mine but I had my first one last year and it was absolutely fine :slight_smile: I think nurses know when it’s your first time, mine asked at least, and then they use a smaller instrument and take it easy. A tiny bit uncomfortable but definitely nothin major. Hope it all goes ok xxo
