What happens after the procedure?

If the cells look normal, no treatment is necessary. The Pap test may show that you have an infection. The doctor may treat you for the infection and suggest that you have another Pap test in several months. If the cells look abnormal, more tests may be necessary. Discuss with the doctor when you should return for any tests or a follow-up exam. A Pap test is not 100% accurate. There are newer methods used now for Pap testing, including computer-assisted testing, which are more accurate. However, these newer methods cost more.
