You : You need to discuss the results of your pap smear with your doctor again so you better understand what was found. Sometimes a test is done with the pap smear to determine if the cerix is infected with a strain of hpv that would put you at a higher risk for cancer and sometimes a special examination of the cervix called a colposcopy is needed to double check the area.

Did pap smear yesterday,inflamed & bleeding cervix. Will go back after a week. Is there any medication i can take to stop my cervix from bleeding??

Treat locally: Once a lesion of the cervix starts bleeding the chance is that it will not stop spontaneously. One could apply laser treatment to stop it or else some form of cauterization.

ASCUS: There is no answer to your question. Ascus means changes of 'unknown' significance. If there was a reason then they would be able to tell you. It surely sounds like your physician is treating you correctly. ...Read more

Possible, but: A negative test is pretty accurate. There are many things that can cause spotting and late period, so if you repeat the test and it is still negative, then it's probably due to something else. ...Read more

My pap smear test results are neg, but also says cervicitis my obg, says i repeat test in 6mths, should I have a 2nd opinion?As I am trying to conceive

Yes: There is no need to repeat a pap smear unless it's abnormal. Cervicitis is treated with antibiotics and cervical infections can be evaluated for quickly without the need for waiting six months. First ask your doctor to explain the reasoning for their plan as they may provide informantion that would make it reasonable to wait. However if you are uncomfortable with the plan seek a second opinion. ...Read more

What does missing component of cervix mean in pap smear result?

What does missing component of cervix mean in pap smear result?

Both are required for a pap to be adqeuate. Often your health care provider will have you return for an attempt to sample the glandular cells as well. ...Read more
