Dear Sammy,

I would suggest you post this question to the gynaecologist. As a sexologist this is not my area of speciality. I am aware that it generally is a procedure about which many women have anxiety and discomfort about and that the Dr needs to be very gentle and reassuring during the procedure. The more anxious and tense you are the more challenging it is for the dr to do the procedure.
