It depends: If the abnormal pap test was caused by HPV or a cervical cancer, then there is usually a significant inflammatory response in that area. The white blood cells will tend to react and phagocytize(eat like Pac man) any and all foreign bodies at that location making it more difficult for sperm to penetrate the cervical mucous and enter the uterus.
