Pregnancy 101 | Abnormal Pap Smears
Pregnancy 101 | Abnormal Pap Smears During Pregnancy:
http://www.lumalove.com/ Apart from being a Certified Nurse Midwife, I am also a trained colposcopist and have taken care of well over two thousand women with abnormal pap smears either inside or outside of pregnancy. So here we are. You are pregnant. Most woman, when they go and have their first prenatal visit, will have a pap smear. A pap smear is a screening tool to screen for potential cervical cancer. What we want to pick up is as follows.
Abnormal pap smears during pregnancy, what we are looking for?
Are your cells normal or are they abnormal. If your cells are abnormal it does not mean that you have got cancer, but it does mean that you have a little bit of a problem. If you do not take care of it, it could eventually lead to cancer. So if you have been told that you have an abnormal pap smear during your pregnancy, please do not worry. It is very good at least that you have gone and got the results and you know what to expect. Sometimes we would send you for a colposcopy. But not all abnormal pap tests results in pregnancy would require that we send you for a colposcopy.
What is a colposcopy for the management of abnormal pap smears during pregnancy?
A Colposcope is a very high-resolution microscope. The procedure is performed exactly like a pap smear except we look through this colposcope. We look at the cells on the cervix and we look for lesions and we can see how bad it is. The majority of women that have abnormal pap smears during pregnancy are never that bad during pregnancy but on the rare occasion if it is, then we will discuss that with you. So please do not sweat it out, but do follow up and make sure after you have the baby that it is crucial to go back in and have a repeat pap test done, so we can see are the cells the same or are they abnormal. Sometimes they heal by themselves. Sometimes they do not. So please but do not think “Oh My God!” you are going to die of cancer or anything like that. No. Just take it easy but do good follow-up.
