Pap Smears

A pap smear is a screening for cervical cancer. Recommendations are to start pap smears at age 21 regardless of sexual activity. During a pap smear, the provider will place a speculum in the vagina in order to visualize the cervix, and then use a spatula and brush-like tool to gently “scrape” or brush cervical cells from the cervix. The cells are then sent off to a lab and examined under a microscope to check for any cervical cell abnormalities.
