Question: abnormal pap


 Toy - Tue May 09, 2006 1:16 pm

37 year old.
I have a history of PCOS
Pap results came back and showed inflammation. I am curious as what the cause could be. No apparent signs of infection. I have been married for 17 years. During those years I have had no other partners and it is extremely doubtful that my husband has since he suffers from ED. I was married previously to a man that had many extramarital affairs. What could be the cause of the inflammation.

User avatar Hello,

Inflammation of the cervix is very common and usually does not mean there is a problem. If the Pap smear showed the inflammation is severe, your doctor may want to find the cause, such as an infection. In such a case your doctor may also recommend a repeat Pap smear to see if the inflammation has gone.

Best regards.
