My 1st Pap Smear. ANY ADVICE?

Hi ladies,

I'm coming here because I've learned so much from all of you - it's great to hear personal experiences and apply them to my life.

On that note, my first pap smear's coming up and I wanted to know if anyone has any advice. I'm honestly a bit scared.

I turned 21 about 5/6 months ago and I'm in college so I'm doing the examination on campus. Not sexually active but I have attempted. It hurt too bad to even go inside. Any tips ladies? (Both the pap smear and the painful sex attempts)

Thanks a bunch!
