No, it does not need to be removed for a Pap smear. The annual gyn exam and testing can be done with the Nuva Ring in place.

Not that I know of. I have had a pap smear done with it in. It may just be the practitioner's preference. If so, then she/he can probably remove and place it back immediately after the exam. But I would leave it in and inform my practitioner.

NuvaRing does not affect Pap smear result. The Pap smear can be done with NuvaRing inserted.

No you do not need a pap smear after a hyserectomy.

If you had your cervix removed during hysterectomy, and if the hysterectomy was not done for pap problems, there is no need for pap smear after hysterectomy in most women. Contact your health care provider for advice specific to your situation.

Since cells from the cervix are what is taken during a pap smear, you would still need to have one if only the uterus was removed, since your cervix would still be there.

If Cervix removed then NO. If not Yes definately as pap smears are done to check for cervical cancer.

User Avatar

If you still have a cervix, or if your uterus was removed due to pap problems, you may need ongoing pap smears. Otherwise, typically you do not. Contact your health care provider for advice specific to your situation.

A pap smear is a swab test of your cervix to test your cells for dysplasia. As there may not be symptoms of an abnormal pap smear, bleeding or spotting can be associated with an abnormal pap smear.

If you have never had a pap smear before or if it is close to the time you are due for your annual exam, most doctors get the pap smear while you are in the office and being examined. If you have recently had a pap test done and it was normal, I would question the doctor about the reason s/he feels there is a need.

Pap smear is the medical term. Pap is short for Papanicolaou.

I assume you mean Pap smear you need a pap smear 3 years AFTER you start having sex or 21 years old, whichever is first. In the UK they wait until 25 years old. OR if you have a bunch of partners or are immunosuppressed you need the pap smear sooner the pap smear is to check for cervical cancer. Cervical cancer used to be the # 1 cause of death of women, they we got pap smears and you need to get a pap smear every year once you hit the threshold above. because of pap smears, we catch cervical cancer early and treat it before most women die.

PAP smear tests are used for testing for cervical cancer. If cervix removed then you cannot contract cervical cancer so no if not removed it is vital you continue with tests
