I find the exams very painful, the dr seems to push too hard, the instruments all feel too big, and the pressure is too much. I had a uterine biopsy a few yrs ago before the hysterectomy. I had it in the office and it hurt like crazy, the dr. couldn't believe it hurt that badly. And last but not least, why the heck are their hands always like ice? There is just nothing pleasant about those visits, but walking out and not coming back for a yr. I think I got that out of my system.
God bless. Alice.
They are painful for me too. Theyhae been painful for me before the idea of Fibro came up. They had never hurt before I had my son, and when I had the first test done after he was born, I was told it was because I was going back to normal down there. But they continue to hurt. No matter how gentle the doctor is, it just hurts so much that I start to cry. I read somewhere that Fibro can cause that kind of pain...
If I can be honest on here...I find it hard to be intimate with my husband anymore, even when I am in the mood, because it seems to hurt almost all the time. The only time it doesn't seem to hurt is when I am on my pain meds...It makes things hard, because it makes me feel like I am being a bad wife. I know that there is way more to a relationship than sex, but it still seems to fill the air with tension. Does anyone else have this problem?
(I feel slightly embarrassed about mentioning that, but I feel like I can be honest here...sorry if this offends anyone or anything like that...)
