After an Abnormal Pap: 4 Things You Should Do Next

abnormal pap test: what to do after

First, understand what a Pap test is

A Pap test (or Pap smear) is a routine screening that looks for abnormal cells on the cervix that could lead to cervical cancer. During the test, a health care provider uses an instrument called a speculum to widen the vagina so the cervix is visible. The provider then uses another instrument to brush or scrape a small sample of cervical cells that are sent away for laboratory analysis. (Before you go in for your test, learn about the patient habits that drive gynecologists crazy.)
