It began like a cramp and then it slowly got worse and worse. Horrible pain.
The worse part lasts about two minutes. Irene, so good to hear that yours was a positive experience. Your experience is very similar to mine so I know what you went through.

Hope you’re feeling better today. I would give anything to have the worst period cramps ever compared to the pain of this! I was so thankful at least I had a doctor that even though he would never know what it felt like to go through this he was truly empathetic about what just happened. I took the medicine for 14 days, and the medicine has no Negative Influence, it only helped me get cured. Your story didn’t freak me out female parts are very sensitive and if a pap smear is uncomfortable for 30 seconds a 5-10 minute biopsy where they go into your hard closed cervical opening into your uterus has to be painful..my Dr didn’t tell me anything but to take a pill she prescribed I looked it up and found its to soften the cervix which will cause cramping etc and I was told by a friend who’s a nurse that it’ll make my cervix very sensitive like giving birth… so we’ll see but I’m NOT afraid to demand to be put under for it..I was also told biopsies don’t always show cancer unless it’s collected closer to the area in question I was told D&C is way better at looking into female issues and doesn’t cause pain for woman!
HOLY CRAP! Bless you. Reading this makes me so mad… but Karma is a bitch. I have never had so much pain in my life doing a EB.
She ensured that I was fully aware of every pro and con of the surgery, I signed consent forms, and agreed ahead for her to remove or repair whatever was necessary. My doctor didn’t make a big deal about it.
I have read all I can find in terms of medical articles and clinical studies. You may have some mild cramping as the instruments enter the uterus and the sample is collected. The doctor was so sweet and tried to guide me through the process.And finally it was over. Just another thing I did not know about this. She already seemed to be in over her head.
The minute I got dressed and started walking I felt menstrual like cramps. If you are one of the lucky ones, **PLEASE** do not assume that what you felt is what other women feel, or that we are just being dramatic. I kind of felt like I was in a fog. It is a traumatic experience and we shouldn’t go through this alone. I was surprised how painful it was. Obtuse. I agree, things have to change with this procedure. Fist she tries 3 times to get the tube in, it did not work she had to get a clamp. Eleven tries and still he can’t get cervix to open so he is using this thick plastic hook that has rings to dilate you and gets bigger in diameter. Thank you for this post. I had mild cramping for a couple of hours afterwards but that was it.
The procedure lasted much long than expected due to my cervix being pretty much clamped shut and uncooperative.
The cervix may then be gently grasped with an instrument to hold the uterus steady. I said, “we’re done?” He said, “No, I haven’t started yet, that was just the tool.” The next few minutes were absolute torture. Admittedly, I arrived a little late due to traffic, and asked if I should reschedule.
But it seems like female devices or procedures can really cause problems in my family? What you’re saying is what thousands of women don’t understand including myself.
