To lessen the chances of error with your pap, there are some things you can
First, know when to have an exam-- don't go near the time of your menstrual
period-- it can make the specimen inaccurate.
And never use a vaginal medicine in the 48 hours before a pap.
Also, you may want to find out if your doctor takes at least TWO samples.
And, do they use a cytobrush-- it's said to provide the best help in
collecting the sample--
You may also ask WHERE the pap is sent.
Remember you can increase the odds of detection by getting a pap regularly.
Maybe you've already heard about reflexology....this ancient practice is
