painful cervix exam


Well, I had a 38weeks appointment today and the doctor wanted to take a sample for Strep. B test and also do a cervix exam for the first time. Both exams (sample collection and fingering) were extremely painful. It felt like he was stabbing me. I screamed and got sweaty. He said it shouldn't be that painful normally and that made it worse for me. Afterwards when I got home and went to pee it hurt like crazy!!! anybody had similar experiences??
