Pap Smear

Definition - What does Pap Smear mean?

A pap smear is a test to screen women for cervical cancer and other abnormalities. Cells are collected from the cervix and examined under a microscope. The test is usually conducted as a part of a yearly physical exam.

Kinkly explains Pap Smear

A pap smear is a test that should be conducted yearly for females over the age of 21. To conduct the test, the doctor uses a device called a speculum to open the vagina to allow the doctor to swab the cervix. For some, the procedure can be uncomfortable and cause some bleeding and cramping after the test. Be sure to tell your doctor if you had abnormal results after your last exam.

  • We do not have to spend money and go hungry and struggle and study to become sensual; we always were. We need not believe we must somehow earn good erotic care; we always deserved it.
