Pap Smear Don’ts

by

Q Is there anything I need to know before going for a Pap Smear?

A Pap smears detect changes in the cells of your cervix and
are a great way for you to monitor your pelvic health. They should
be done annually (unless your doctor suggests otherwise) especially
if you’re sexually active. The inspection itself can help detect any
potential STIs (sexually transmitted infections).

Some things can throw off your test results though so you should be
careful NOT to:

+Use any vaginal creams or medications
+Do any douching (I don’t recommend doing this ever anyhow)
+Use any vaginal sprays or powders
+Use tampons

And of course, refrain from sexual intercourse!
