pap smear???

What exactly does a pap smear test for?? would BV or a yeast infection show up as abnormal on a pap smear? would HPV?

also, with a blood test and a pap smear, what is standardly tested for?  (STD or BV/yeast wise)

A pap smear checks for changes in the cells of your cervix. It can tell if you have an infection, abnormal cervical cells, or cervical cancer. I don't think BV or yeast infections would be diagnosed by a pap smear, though, but your obgyn can run separate tests to check for that.

I have an abnormal pap smear and have to get a Coloscopy on April 20th. thats the earliest i can get in..grrr..
lol..
not always means u have cancer..and actually by infections, lol, a pap smear can detect bacterial and/or yest infections im pretty sur eof it.
also i heard that pap smears can turn up abnormal if you had sex right before or a day or so before gettting a pap done. So it also could be from that, idk thats wat i read online.Not sure exactly.but ughh yahh..
so idk, what may have caused my abnormal pap but ill keep yahh updated if youd like when my results come back after i get that Coloscopy done (another pap smear like test they do after having an abnormal pap come up). But idk,
