Is It Necessary To Have A Pap Smear If Frequent Intercourse And Lower Left Abdominal Pain After Intercourse?
Hello marry jane,
Pap smear is an examination to see the process of inflammation in the area around the female organs, namely the cervix to determine whether there is infection, inflammation or risk of malignancy such as uterine cancer. Pap smear itself is done on those who have been active in sexual relations, although occasionally especially when dealing with changing partners, the risk of infection or interference with the female organs can increase. In addition, if the pap smear results are good, you can do an HPV vaccination to prevent the risk of infection with the human papilloma virus which can be the cause of uterine cancer. In addition to Pap smear, you can also do other examinations that may result from sexual contact such as VCT and hepatitis.
Left abdominal pain itself can be triggered by many possible causes, ranging from tense muscles, digestive tract pain such as the intestine and stomach, urinary tract infections, or disorders of the reproductive organs such as cysts or other possibilities. Sexually transmitted infections can also be possible if accompanied by other symptoms such as pain during urination, vaginal discharge, bleeding, and other symptoms. For that reason, if complaints often arise repeatedly and arise accompanied by other symptoms as mentioned, it is advisable to check so that the cause is known.
