what are these cells found on Pap test?

I did the pap test and it showed normal but it had written reactive endocervical cells, any idea what this could be?

Thank you

Reactive and reparative changes -- these may be due to gyny procedures or childbirth related.
Inflamation (inflammation) (includes typical repair) -- the woman may be re-tested. Even if none of the definitive signs of infection above is present, her doctor may treat her with antibiotics, especially if the inflammatory result is persistent.
Atrophy with inflamation (inflammation) ("atrophic vaginitis") This is usually seen in post-menopausal women. Hormone replacement, vaginal estrogen creasm, or lubricants may be suggested.
Radiation
Intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)
Other

I just googled this but think you have little to worry about! :)
