Hello, thank you for your question
Pap smear or pap test is a test to detect the presence of cervical cancer so that it can be treated as early as possible. This test can also predict the likelihood of developing cancer in the future. This examination is indicated in women 21 years and over or less than 21 years but have had sexual intercourse. Generally done regularly every 1-3 years.
There are various classifications for interpreting the results of a pap smear examination. One that is often used is the Papanicolau method. Here are the classifications:
class I - negative (normal) class II - there are atypical cells, but no signs of malignancy / cancer
found cells that undergo regeneration, mainly as a result of postpartum changes or due to non-specific inflammation
Pap smear examination should be repeated 6 months later class III: precancerous lesions, there is mild dysplasia in class IV cells: there is moderate to severe dyspalsia in the cells, indicating a localized cancer (carcinoma in situ) class V: cancer Thus , based on your exposure above, it seems that your cervix is experiencing non-specific inflammation, but there are no cancer cells. Inflammation of the cervix should not be taken lightly. Convey the results of this examination to an obstetrician who usually treats you. The doctor will determine the appropriate treatment steps. Follow your doctor's instructions and do another pap-smear, at least 6 months later.
Some suggestions for pap smear preparation:
avoid using a special vaginal cleanser (douche) for at least 3 days avoid sexual intercourse with your partner for at least 3 days make sure you are not menstruating or experiencing bleeding if you experience vaginal discharge you should tell the doctor first so that it can be treated like an examination is done Hopefully it is useful
