How to Prepare for Your First Pap Smear

What To Know Before Your Pap Smear Test

Before your test, there are certain things you need to do to prepare, as well as a few steps you can take to ensure your experience is a comfortable one.

 1. A Period-Free Day Is Best

When scheduling your pap smear, try not to schedule your appointment during your period. If it’s unavoidable, that’s okay however, a period-free day is best, as it makes the exam easier for both you and your doctor.

2. Avoid Vaginal Intercourse, Douching and Any Vaginally Applied Medicine For At Least Two Days Prior To The Exam.

Doing any of these things within two days of your test may obscure or even wash away potential abnormal cells your doctor will be swabbing for.

3. Go for Your Test Within A 6-day Window

In order to make the screening as convenient as possible for everyone in light of the above stated conditions, we have a schedule that allows you to make the visit to the clinic within a 6-day period.

Kindly endeavor to go for your free test within the 6-day Monday-Saturday window to be communicated to you. Failure to do so will invalidate your opportunity.

4. Means of Identification

Please go to the clinic with a valid means of identification.
