how long does brown spotting after pelvic exam last?

Dr. John Berryman

Spotting/exam: Spotting after a gyn exam which includes a pap smear may be caused by scraping of the cervix, which is easily irritated and bleeding can occur, which if minor can turn "brown" before being obvious on clothing or a pad. It should subside in a few days, but if not, see your gyn for an exam and possible treatment.
