Pap smear

I went for a Pap smear but I used a dildo a couple hours before. My results came back negative but I later learned that you are not supposed to! Should I be worried that my results are wrong?

Hello,
It is important not to use douches, vaginal creams or medication, or have vaginal penetration with a penis, finger, or dildo within 48 hours prior to your pelvic exam. These can distort the appearance of the cells to be studied in the pap. Hence get a repeat PAP smear done after some days.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
