OB GYN

I had a test done for bacterial vaginosis several week ago.

Customer Question
The test was very painful...
I had a test done for bacterial vaginosis several week ago.
The test was very painful and I still have pain from it.
I have never had sex, I have never had any of these kinds of tests done before.
My hymen was intact, I saw it for years, you couldn't miss it, and I am having a harder time seeing it now than I did before. Can a speculum tear your hymen? And Is that why I still have pain?
It's very noticeable pain all the time, it hurts even when I sit.
I have never had vaginal pain issues or any Gyn problems before this.
I have very regular periods. I am now a week late on my period too.
I've not been off more than a few days either way in years.
Can you please give me some ideas here.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes a speculum can tear the hymen causing pain and discomfort.

This should heal gradually over time.

Your infection also should be treated.
Best wishes,

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
