Sometimes you do get abnormal pap smears.  Usually the doctor makes you come back for another or does a biopsy of the cervix to make sure that everything is okay.  If he sees anything such as polyps, you can usually get rid of them by doing a cryo procedure where the cervix is frozen with liquid nitrogen.  I have had this done several times.  And  it is always good to go every year for a pap smear.
