Burning, itchiness, irritation.... Injury from Speculum?
Patient : I had my IUD checked vaginally by my doctor and when she put the speculum in, it was painful. Now, almost a week later, i'm still feeling irritation and burning and intercourse is too painful. Could she have injured me? Should I call her back or just wait for it to heal naturally?
