Has anyone had this? Am booked in for this Friday. What's it like? Is it painful? Have had very little info from the hospital.

I am a bit worried because apparently there is a small risk of premature labour with future pregnancies.

i had it and it didnt hurt at all, i was amazed because people kept telling me stories of burning smell etc and worse pain than childbirth.
i think there is a small risk, i would talk to the nurse, i am sure that the midwife will keep a watchful eye on you with future pregnancies.

Hi Piggyleroux
Useful info here.
I have also had a LLETZ (as well as working in a screening lab so that was weird!) and it didn't hurt as they do a local anaesthetic. Sometimes you can feel a slight tugging.
Do take a large pad with you, and get a lift back as you might feel a little wobbly afterwards. Oh and wearing a skirt is easier.
They should tell you but do ask when and how you will get your results and whether they will want to see you back there to discuss them.

Thanks. Was a little worried but feel better now.
