    Nah :)

    You'll be fine having a smear, it will just touch the outside of your cervix and not go inside at all.

    cheers Louise! i know its not an invasive thing but wanted to check. will be asking nurse to see if my cervix is tilted or anything when she is up there! one girl in ttc said she was told she had a tilted cervix and the nurse advised doggy for when her hubby came to make sure it ended up in the right place, she is now in tri1.

    I'm having one tomorrow and I'm going to ask about cervix too. I remember in the past them having difficulty getting a sample - I wonder does that mean it's in a funny position or anything? OH will be delighted if we have to go doggy every time! :lol:

    It should be fine - in the US they give you a smear in early pregnancy as routine?

    I had mine in Dec (just before Ov though) and there was no issue

    I think 25 if i remember right... then is when they are supposed to prompt you to attend for cervical cancer smears.

    No harm in sooner though if you think you might have been exposed to an STI or something before your current partner as not all of them have symptoms but things like chlamydia can really mess up your reproductive organs xx

    Are you in England? Or Scotland (or father afield??)

    England is once every 3 years from age of 25 and Scotland is same but from age 21.
