What's a Pap smear?

 

Anna

---

Dear Anna,

The Pap smear or Pap test is a little test that may be the most important development in women's health. It is a screening test for cancer of the cervix. Since its introduction, there has been a dramatic decline in deaths from the disease. In addition to detecting cancer and pre-cancerous cells, the Pap test may also show evidence of vaginal infections, such as yeast or viral infections.

 

The test is done by taking a scraping of the cells on the cervix and upper vaginal area. It is not painful, and takes about 510 seconds to do. You can learn about a vaginal examination at Gynecological Exam here [link to ART321].

I'm crazy uncomfortable at just the thought of that. I mean in the gym locker rooms at school, I don't want the other girls to see my underwear even, I'm careful not to show anything down low, but I don't even care if they see my bra or chest etc.
