Anesthetized Exam: Children who require gynecologic exams are often anesthetized so they do not feel any discomfort. This is not generally done for adults but could be done depending on the circumstances and an assessment of risk versus benefit. You should talk to your gynecologist about it.

That's pretty : Aggressive. I would start by requesting an anxiolytic medication from your OB gyn. If that doesn't help than you may consider a more invasive intervention.
