I called my gyn for my pap results. Talked to the receptionist. Scheduled a colposcopy. What does this mean?

Closer look. Colposcopy is very similar to a pap exam. The colposcooe is a magnifying machine, used from the out side, to get a better look at the female cervix. There is posibly some areas of the cervix that can be missed on routine pap.
Prevent cancer! It's VERY important to get a colposcopy if your pap is abnormal. A colposcopy is a speculum exam where special stains and magnifying lenses are used to look for pre-cancers on your cervix. If there are abnormalities, your GYN will take a biopsy, which is uncomfortable, but lasts .
