Having a regular Pap smear is an important part of preventative healthcare for women. The test is performed by your gynecologist and takes just minutes. This video explains more about the process.
During a Pap smear, your gynecologist will remove a sample of cells from your cervix with a small brush. These cells are screened for abnormalities that could indicate cancer. The test is performed in the doctor’s office and does not require any anesthesia. Mild discomfort is possible for a few seconds when your gynecologist brushes the cervix, but it resolves immediately after the test.
