What does it mean when if your doctor calls you back for blood test after a pap smear?

Maybe STD issues?: Pap smears look for hpv changes on the cervix. Hpv is a very common std. If the pap was abnormal, it would be appropriate to look for other stds, some of which can be tested with a blood test, like hiv, herpes, hepatitis, syphilis. Urine tests can be done for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Go back to see your doc. For others looking for std testing, consider sexualhealth.Com or other trusted clinics.
