Your doc should: Have told u that sometimes it can bleed as long as he didnt see a lesion or tumor then the pap hopefully will be normal , it could come back abnormal, and sometimes bleeding can be from an undiagnosed std like chl or gc so the dco can run those 2 tests with the pap to make sure they are neg.
