So I was actually on the older side. I was 25 when I had my first pelvic exam but I had never been able to use tampons and avoided getting a Pap smear for years so nothing had ever been inside me. The doctor knew all of that but she still didn’t tell me what she was doing or what to expect. She also made me bleed and I felt so violated afterwards. I’m sorry you had a similar experience!
