Patient : Hi Dr. I recently had a Pap smear and it came back as abnormal! The nurse told me that on a scale of 1 to 5 my results were between 1 and 2! Does that mean I have hpv or pre cancer cells I have been having pap smears since I was 17 and this was my first abnormal test. I also recently had a miscarrage could that maybe affect the test. I also had sex lest than 24 hours before my test could that also affect the test. Thanks so much
