Papsmear and hysteroscopy

Hi

Do you guys shave down there when going for a papsmear? Is this the proper thing to do or doesn't it matter?

Then, I'm going for a hysteroscopy one of these days and want to know if anesthetics are bad for your health. Which one is the best - local or general (complete)?

Thanks!

The shaving is a personal preference : some women do, some don't.
A local anesthetic is better in that it has fewer side effects.

Best wishes
