Why do you spot blood or get brownish spotting after a pelvic exam/pap smear? Only notice on toilet paper after urination.
Maybe just ok...:
Give at least one week to pass by and I would not worry as long as getting better and better day by day.
If any doubt, see and talk with professionals with a proper urinalysis to clear and address your personal concern.
Meanwhile, practice healthy lifestyle and avoid any forms of overindulgence and obsession.

Slight spotting and mild cramps could happen. Your feeling run down is probably coincidental. If you do not feel better in a day or two, you should contact your doctor. For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Not at this time: Now after a pap smear it is ok to experience light spotting.

No period for the last 4 months. Spotting yesterday only for an hour now its stopped. A 20-year-old virgin but anemic. Doctor wants to do a pap smear.
Had a PapSmear today and I was spotting I don't get my menstrual cycle anymore I never spotted when I had Pap should I be concerned?
Spotting for a day or so is likely to be the result of scraping the cervix for the PAP smear. If the spotting lasts longer than 3-4 days, it would be prudent to consult your doctor.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
