Pap showed ascus. This was a pap done right after I took diflucan (fluconazole) and finished Monistat regimen for a bad yeast infection, is it HPV or benign?

If hpv is positive with ascus, you should undergo a painless procedure called colposcopy. It allows a closer look at the cervix and may localize the source of the inflammatory cells (ascus). ...Read more
