Re: Anyone refuse pap smears/vaginal exams during pregnancy?

Thank you all!

I haven't been to my first appointment yet so I'll have to see how it goes.

I am afraid that if I refuse that they will refuse care to me (dr) so I don't know. Maybe I could consider a midwife. I'll see what my options are first.

Re: Anyone refuse pap smears/vaginal exams during pregnancy?

I got my appointment changed to tomorrow, so I'll try to post afterwards how it goes refusing one. I finally told my mom some of my concerns about it, and, even though she's all for doing what the doc says, even she told me to refuse b/c that's not a good idea while pregnant. I'll be seeing a midwife who's part of a practice with drs. If you go natural, you see the midwife. Otherwise, you still see the docs. According to the nurse and appointment people, the midwife does the exam at the first visit just like a doc, though, which is weird considering what everyone else has said about midwifes. Hopefully she'll turn out to be cool about it all.

If you don't want it, just say no thank you I have never had any in my last 7 pregnancies.
