how often should one get a pap test done after a leep procedure?

3 moth then every--: We will consider that the leep was for cis/cin2/3 with negative margin. This suggests that you have predisposition for higher grade lesion (due to hr hpv). So you will need close follow up defined by your doctor. Usually first pap iafter 3 months and then every 6 months may be ok till consistently negative to be converted to regular pattern.
