how long does brown discharge last after pap smear?

Dr. Timothy Raichle

Less than 24 hours: The cervix is prone to bleeding after a pap smear. This blood can make its way out as a brownish discharge. This should get better and disappear within about 24 hours.

Probably not: It is not uncommon to have brief minor bleeding after a pap smear. It should resolve reasonably quickly.
