Can I have normal pap smear after leep procedure?

YES: And you probably will have normal paps. The leep is intended to remove all the abnormal cells. Most women do have normal pap smears after a leep, some women will eventually develop some degree of dysplasia that will show up on a pap as dysplasia.
