Does a smear test hurt?

Many women worry that a smear test will be painful or uncomfortable but your doctor will take this into account and ensure any discomfort is kept to a minimum. In most cases, patients don’t experience any pain or discomfort when a smear test is carried out. Although patients may find cervical screening to be embarrassing, Dr Kiran Bindra routinely carries out these tests and there is no reason for you to feel embarrassed. If you are experiencing any discomfort be sure to tell your doctor as they may be able to reposition you, use alternative instruments or techniques and offer tips to help you relax.
