Pap smear

I need to go for a pap smear as I am sexually active but it will be my first one and I am quite nervous as i don't know what to expect. Please can you tell me what it is all about, how long it takes etc. I know it seems a silly question but I hate the unknown!
Thanks!

Hi Elle,

Also went for my first one the other day - it really is not that bad!

They insert this metal or plastic contraption into you, and it winds open. then they take swabs and send them off to the lab.

Its not painfull, but is uncomfortable. Good luck.
