If you have a Pap smear can a doctor see if you have a tampon inside you?
If you have a tampon in your vagina, your health care provider would have noticed it during your pap smear.
Pap smear scraps some of the cells off the inside of the wall of the vaginal opening. These cells can tell the doctor whether or not you have an infection, pre-cancerous cells, STD, etc... A pap smear would not detect an ovulation or uterine issue that could prevent you from having children. Having a normal pap smear is always a good thing, but is not neccesarily an indication that you will not have problems conceiving…
You are 5 weeks pregnant and had a pap done yesterday and now am having a brownish discharge Is this normal to experience this after a pap smear during pregnancy?
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.
A pap smear is a simple test performed by your gynecologist to test for any cervical changes. It tests for cancer and other malignancies. A pap smear is given by gently swabbing the cervical area. This removes cells from the surface of the cervix that can be analyzed by your doctor or gynecologist to test for any problems.
