After an abnormal Pap smear, Dr. Biswas typically recommends additional testing, such as another Pap smear or colposcopy. Dr. Biswas requires further testing to determine if you have a/an infection, inflammation, yeast infection, sexually transmitted disease, or another health condition or complication.
Some Pap smears might show abnormal results due to recent sexual activity or the use of certain vaginal creams or douches. Regardless of the reason, an abnormal Pap smear requires further testing and another Pap smear in a few months to protect your reproductive health.
Dr. Biswas knows an abnormal Pap smear result can generate anxiety and worry. She takes time to explain your results and only performs invasive procedures when necessary.
With a colposcopy, Dr. Biswas gently inserts a speculum into your vagina and paints the outside of your cervix with a vinegar solution to make abnormal areas stand out. After locating an abnormal area, Dr. Biswas might take a biopsy of the area for analysis.
Cryosurgery involves freezing the abnormal cells. A cone biopsy is a procedure that involves removing a triangle of cervical tissue, including abnormal cells.
The LEEP procedure
The LEEP procedure is similar to a cone biopsy. However, during this procedure, Dr. Biswas inserts a loop-shaped instrument to remove the abnormal area.
