papsmear testing

Apr 3, 2001

wouls a papsmear test detect if you have contracted HIV

Response from Mr. Kull

No it would not. A pap smear is used to detect abnormal cells in the cervix that may be indicative of cancer or precancerous conditions. In order to determine if you are HIV infected, you need to get an HIV antibody test at least 3-6 months after exposure.
