Does pap smear test for warts n hpv?

Usually

Warts
Usually the virus is not looked for unless your pap is abnormal. If it is abnormal, the lab I use will do what is called reflex testing for the presence or absence of the hpv virus. If your pap is normal, at his time, there is no recommended treatment for simply having the presence of the virus so unless there are visible lesions or an abnormal pap there is no further action necessary.

Depends

Abnormal pap smear can be due to low grade infection also. Hpv testing can be done to find and confirm hpv infection.

Will a pap smear be negative if you have hpv?

Sometimes

Pap_smear
If the hpv virus does not change the cellular content of the pap smear then it will be reported as negative even though it was present. Many pap labs now also report the presence and typing of the hpv on pap smears.

Are abnormal pap smear and hpv the same thing?

Almost

Pap_smear
Iy is estimated that over 98% of abnormal paps are caused by hpv and over 99% of cervical cancers are caused by hpv. The pap smear is looking at the cervical cells, hpv is the virus that can infect and affect those cells.

Yes. Of course. The ability to stop and prevent cervical cancer is a major advancement in female health. Catching the changes that hpv can cause that lead to cancer is a miracle. Do not miss out on the miracle. Get your cervix examined and lick this potential health problem early.

If you have hpv, will you get an abnormal pap smear right away?

HPV is tricky

Cancer
Hpv can show up on your pap smear quickly or years later. The good news: healthy young women may clear hpv. The bad news: some will progress to cancer. Men have no symptoms and you can even get hpv through a condom. If any of his past girl friends have had a bad pap smear or been to the gyn a lot for unknown reasons, do not have sex with him until you are married. He is not worth the risk.
