Pap result: mild inflam. background, superficial & intermed. squamous cells w/ benign endocervical cells; history of 2 irreg. paps. Colposcopy needed?

No: If read accurately, your Pap smear indicates an inflammatory or infectious process - not a premalignant one. Colposcopy is not indicated now but you need to be checked to see what is causing the inflammation...clear the inflammation...repeat the pap...and only then have a colposcopy if the Pap smear shows premalignant cells. You could also be tested for high-risk HPV. ...Read more

How long does the dilation and curettage take?

How long does the dilation and curettage take?

10-20 minutes: It takes longer to prepare than to do. Once you've received a light anesthetic (or local injection) it's under 5 minutes to measure the length of the cervix and dilate it. The curettage part takes another 3-5 minutes. If it's not pregnancy related, a camera (hysteroscopy) can be used to visualize the uterine cavity and this part can more than double the amount of time. ...Read more

I have to have a dilation and curettage. What should I expect?

I have to have a dilation and curettage. What should I expect?

Mild cramping: There will be mild cramping and perhaps some residual bleeding post-op. The cervix will be open after dilation and therefore there is a slight risk for infection if there are "visitors" in the vagina during the first post-op week. It was once considered a "minor " surgery, but of course "minor surgery" is what happens to someone else. ...Read more
