Why do you have to get a Pap cervical smear if your a virgin and are not sexually active?

There are other...

Cancer
...causes of cervical cancer, besides HPV. Both the American Cancer Society and the The American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists recommend that all women have an initial Pap smear by the age of 21, regardless of whether or not they've had sexual intercourse. How often you have them after that will depend on when you do become sexually active.

During pap smear- my cervix was bleeding- is it a bad sign?

Your doc should

Cervix
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

Is bleeding during a pap smear and tender cervix normal? Hi, I am 19 years old I have only had two sexual partners I have had lower abdominal pain which the doctors think is from my scar tissue. Today I had a pap smear and my gyno said my cervix was swoll

First

First of all your concern about Cervical cancer is valid, given that your grandmother had cervical cancer. But, at 19 yrs old cervical cancer is not something to be concerned. The incidence is almost none to rare. In fact, as per new guidelines by health care leaders, pap smear should be started when woman is 21 yrs old. However there are other reasons why a pap smear was thought necessary before age 21. The most important thing for woman exam (pelvic exam) at your age is STD screening and if woman has any menstrual problems or pelvic pain issues. So, with the above information I provided, bleeding during pap smear if it is unusually more and if the cervix is very tender, I would recommend that you should get STD screening. Infections with chlamydia and Trichomonas can cause tender cervix, pain with intercourse and also can make it bleed easily. sometimes, woman might not have typical symptoms of burning and vaginal discharge with chlamydia infection. Just that infection with chlamydia has long term implications on fertility and other complications, it is worth getting checked. My sincere advise is to use protection without failure any time to prevent STDs. I do want to provide you with some more information about cervical cancer and how to modify any risk factors to decrease your risk of cervical cancer in the future. One of the risk factors that causes cervical cancer is HPV infection. but more than half of women of your age fight it off and get rid of it. Human papilloma virus is a infection that is transmitted sexually. This puts women at high risk for cervical cancer. There is a vaccine available to prevent the risk of getting high risk HPV from partners. At your age that is very well worth the cost to get the vaccine. it is a series of 3 injections over a period of 6 months. please talk to your doctor for more information about risk factors for cervical cancer. I hope this is helpful information to you.

Went to my gynecologist she did a pap smear. Do to I have hpv she barely touched my cervix and it started bleeding some.?

Complication?

I know of no specific relationship between Pap smear post procedural bleeding and HPV infection. That said, you may want to follow-up sooner with your physician to double check that there is not some sort of complication (some spotting maybe ok but frank hemorrhage may need to be rechecked).

Have postcoital bleeding for 8mo.Had 3 paps since found my cervix bleeds easily.Cleared an infection 6mo ago still bleeding.Low grade abnormal pap?

What's the question?

Infection
This is quite obviously abnormal and should be followed up carefully by your gynecologist. One of the common sources for problems of this nature is infection with HPV, and if the strain is one of those responsible for induction of cancer you should be back for regular checkups. Since there are other causes for this and have not examined you, will defer to your doctor. Best.

I'm a 40 yr old I had a supracervical hysterectomy 2 yrs ago. Now having vag. Bleeding monthly.Pap showed endometrial cells on cervix?

Yes

Cervix
Sometimes with a supracervical hysterectomy a small nubbin of endometrial tissue can remain behind and will bleed each month like a regular period used to. It is of no significance and shouldn't worry you and not worth having additional surgery or doing anything about it.
