Explanation Of Pap Smear Examination Results?
, want to ask at the end of December I did a pap smear and the results (LSIL) Low grade squamous intraepithelial lesio without HPV effects. My complaint in my vagina has been itching for almost a month. What should be done next?
Hello Ely, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Pap smear examination results in the form of LSIL can be interpreted that found a change in cervical cells that indicate a minimal abnormality that is generally caused by an HPV virus infection, but this condition will generally experience improvement by itself.
Based on the recommendations available, in patients with a Pap smear in the form of LSIL, the follow-up varies depending on the patient's age and the presence or absence of HPV infection, so it is highly recommended that you consult further with an obstetrician to determine how recommended for you based on the results of the pap smear.
In addition to determining how your recommendations are based on the results of the pap smear, consult with your obstetrician to determine what causes the complaint that you have felt for a long time, is it related to your pap smear results or is it a different condition such as a bacterial infection or fungal infection in vagina and to determine what therapy should be given.
In the meantime, you are not recommended to consume or use any drugs without clear doctor's advice to avoid worsening complaints. It is also recommended to better maintain the cleanliness of your sex organs, especially during menstruation and after sex. When using pads, make sure pads are replaced a maximum of every 8 hours, avoid using pads that have certain fragrances. Also avoid the use of vaginal cleaning fluids, especially those that have a certain fragrance until there is further advice from the doctor.
I hope this helps.
