Question: Lately I've been having a hard time inserting a lubricant application into my vagina. I have to try a few times
before it eventually goes in. I have noticed a little blood on applicator. I had my last pap smear in May 2016

Brief Answer:
you need to get a repeat PAP smear done

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

The difficulty in insertion can be due to vaginal dryness that can be relieved by using a lubricant. The bleeding can be due to dryness or rough insertion. It is best to get a repeat PAP smear done to rule out any cervical pathology.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
