Did you know that a Pap smear (Pap Test) can detect infections and life-threatening conditions, such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer? If you’ve had an abnormal Pap smear, schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Stefanie Schultis as soon as possible.

What if I have an abnormal Pap test?

An abnormal Pap smear can result from several issues besides cancer or pre-cancer cells. Other reasons for an abnormal Pap might include:

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)

  • Vaginal infection

  • Recent douching

  • Recent use of tampons

  • Recent sexual activity
