TIPS - for optimal Pap smears/pelvic exam results

  • Schedule your pap smear mid-cycle if possible. Avoid the time when there is heavy menstrual bleeding. Blood may obscure cervical cells making accurate evaluation difficult.

48 hours prior to your pap smear:

  1. If sexually active, no intercourse
  2. No vaginal creams or suppositories
  3. No douching
  4. No tampons
  5. No diaphragms
  6. No female condoms
    • If you are using NuvaRing, please remove the ring just before coming in for your scheduled appointment. The ring can be removed for 3 hours without affecting it’s potency.
    • STD screening for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea can be done at the same time
