Pap smear in Japan?

This might be a long shot, but does anyone have any experience with getting a pap smear done in Japan? I'm due to have mine... Uh, a few days ago, so I want to make an appointment soon. I'm just a bit worried because I don't know what to expect. I've been to see doctors here before, and it's not like they're bad... They just have different methods of doing some things than what I'm used to, so I don't want to freak out if they try something that I've never heard of.

Is it standard to test for BV and YI? How do they get the results to you? About how much does it cost (with national health insurance)? Do they mind if you have someone in the room? I'm alright with speaking, but if a stranger is sticking their hands in me, I'd rather have my fiance or someone else who can speak it to help me out since I tend to get shaken up during exams like that. Would you suggest going to a hospital or a specialized clinic? Any advice would be great!

Sorry for so many odd questions. I always get a bit anxious when I have to go in, so I want to make sure I don't have anything to freak out about when I go in. Thanks in advance!
