Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


Hi everyone,
I'm the one who wrote a couple of weeks ago. I had a pap smear done on 9/13/05...my first one in 14 years. I am 32 years old.

[B]The nurse practitioner left the following message on my cell phone:
pap smear came back "mildly atypical" but has nothing to do with cancer or infection usually, but I need to repeat the pap in 6 months. She said it's a common result and could be due to a number of causes, including having sex to close to my pap date.[/B]

I know my pap result wasn't affected by sex, because it's been quite some time since I've had sex.
On the day of my pap smear, I was on the last day of antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. Could this have affected the result?

[B]Is "mildly atypical" the same as "ASCUS"?[/B]

Is it really nothing to worry about like she made it sound?

I guess I'm a little on edge because it's been so many years since I had a pap.
But, I will NEVER miss another pap smear appointment. I have learned my lesson.

Any clarification or insight is very much appreciated.

God Bless all of you.
