In brief: Cervical Smears

A routine pap can show abnormal cells due to either hpv (virus) or bacterial infections (chlamydia) or yeast (candida).
Since a pathologist is looking at small cells they can see abnormalities that are reported to the doctor and then to you. A repeat pap (after treatment) will ensure that there are no abnormal cell seen on the surface of the cervix. Chlamydia is very common and should be treated.
