Pap Exam Amp Pregnancy

Diane - August 3

I am about 15.5 weeks pregnant & my doctor wants to do a pap exam because I'll still be pregnant for my anual exam date. I feel that it is too late in my pregnancy. They claim that all get this test at their initial visit. My doctor's staff has made mistakes with my scheduling. I am worried that it might hurt the baby. I don't recall having this done with my first child. If I did, it would have been eariler in the pregnancy. Have any of you ever heard of anyone getting a pap at almost 16 weeks of pregnancy?

I don't see why it would be more dangerous later on....pap smears only involve the opening of the v____a and the cervix...baby is protected up inside the uterus...I would imagine having a pelvic exam is much like having s_x and women have that until the end of the third trimester....does that make sense? I mean, I am not sure but that is what I would think about the whole thing

I don't think it would harm the baby. I think I had my pap exam when I was at least 13 weeks because I had to switch doctors. The baby should be fine, I wouldn't worry. I doubt your doctor would do anything to harm your baby.

Ive never had mine done while pregnant due to the fact i usually bleed a lil afterward, my dr knows im not comfortable with getting done while pregnant and is completely understanding
