Question: Does pap test for HPV?
|mynameismissy - Tue Apr 20, 2004 10:49 am||
I go to the gynecologist yearly for a pap smear for my birth control. Do they test for HPV with pap smear? Do they test for any other STDs in the pap smear? Thank you.

i don't think this is done.
Paps are to check the cervix cells and whether they look abnormal or not as a screening for cancer of the cervix.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
