When I went to the gynocologist they did a pap smear. When they called me for my results they said I was inflammed alittle on my cervix(where they take the cells from)so they could not read the test accuratley. Should I be worried?

Nobody here is a doctor, hun. And even if we were, we don't have a copy of your results in front of us.

That's a question you really need to be asking your doctor. Call your gyn's office and ask your doctor or one of the nurses to explain to you exactly what it means and whether or not you should be worried. They should be able to tell you whether or not to be worried and what this means in terms of your health.
