And I'm nervous! I bled a little during my pap smear and had some minimal spotting after. I googled this and it said that my cervix is probably inflamed and I might have an infection. [Frown] I'm scared and I don't know what to do. [Frown] Me and my BF have been tested so this really scares me.

Actually, spotting after a pap is not uncommon, and is probably just from the pap unless you had any bleeding or spotting BEFORE.

Did you just get a new STI screening with your pap smear? Is your boyfriend's set of tests also current?

No, I didn't. After she scraped she noticed I started to bleed and said not to panic, it happens. She said I looked healthy, too.

I did not because it was an extra $40 and I only had enough money to do the pap. [Frown] Yes, my boyfriend's tests are current, within the last 5 months. We've been together for almost a year.

So, she said not to panic, and I'd again concur. [Smile]

Also, if for some reason the test does come back abnormal, what could be some reasons?

I was just concerned cause I don't recall bleeding from other pap smears. But, I didn't go to a gynecologist this last time.
