The Pap Test is recommended for most women who are 21 or older at regular intervals according to ACS guidelines. The Pap Test is done as part of a routine pelvic exam. Your healthcare provider uses a small speculum to gently open the vagina and obtain cells from the cervix with a small spatula. A small brush is also used to obtain cells from the cervical canal. These cells are then analyzed in the laboratory. In some cases, the cells are also tested for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Results are usually available within two weeks and will be sent to you via the patient portal, a letter or phone call.
