Depends: It will depend on the turn around time at the lab where your specimen was sent as well as turn around time for your doctor to see the results. Most times the result will be to the office within a week. Check with your office to see of they tell you the results regardless or only if there is an abnormal result.

About a week: It should not take more that a few day, two weeks at the worst.

Can a doctor perform a pap smear against my will or not?

No: A doctor would not perform a pap smear if you refused. That would be battery. However, if you are nervous about having a pap smear, talk to your doctor. She can explain the procedure to you.
