Trying to Get Pregnant

Pap Smear During 2ww?

Anyone have any experience with getting their lady-parts checkup done during the 2ww? I'll obviously mention it to the doc, but could it cause any issues that I should be aware of?

  • What issues could it possibly cause? Seriously- I would love to know the train of thought that leads you to believe taking a few cells from your cervix will prevent you from getting pregnant.

  • What kind of problems are you talking about?  They even give paps to pregnant women... It's not like whatever ball of cells *might* be in there will fall out.  ;)

  • No.  It's fine.

    Thank you for getting your pap smear!

     I love you. Maybe I'm an idiot for it, but I always have. Everything good that I try and do I do it because of you.  I try and get away but I just keep coming back. And that's because I love you.


  • If peen pounding cervix during sex doesn't knock anything loose, why on earth would you think a little scrape would do any harm? I certainly have a more 'vigorous' experience during sex than I ever get with a pap, if not I wouldn't be so reluctant to go in for mine as ordered!

    No, but what are your concerns? How do you think that a pap would negatively affect you in the 2ww?

    TTC since October 2011. PCOS, single fallopian tube. HSG showed tube was blocked (this is but one reason why you undergo testing BEFORE starting fertility meds, kiddos). TTC on hold due to DX of Stage IV lung cancer in August 2013, non-smoker. Cancer found due to blood clot in leg (WTF?) DX Stage IV adenocarcinoma of the lung, with liver and bone metastases. Genetic tests of tumor showed positive for rare ALK gene mutation (only 4% of lung cancer patients have it). Started Xalkori (oral chemo) 9/13/13. Scan on 10/30/13 shows lymph shrinkage (yay!). Hospitalized over Thanksgiving (12 days) due to fluid around heart. Underwent surgery to install pericardial window. Xalkori resistance confirmed. Started clinical trial for a new (3rd gen) ALK responsive drug on 12/13/13. Scan on 2/3/13 showed marked improvement. Lymph nodes are shrinking, right lung is opening up and the lesion on my liver has shrunk by more than 50%. CT scan on 3/31 showed marked improvements in both lung and liver, YES! PET scan in two months. 

     
     
  • I was actually pretty certain that it wouldn't and didn't even think anything of it when they called to confirm my appointment, but thought I would ask just in case so I don't show up and they turn me away for some crazy unknown reason.

    I had a pap when I was 8 weeks pregnant.  You'll be fine.

  • I'm pretty sure I had a pap at my first appointment when I was pregnant. I think it's pretty standard.
