Will a PAP disclose if u are HIV+
Nov 4, 2001

I was wondering if you had a yearly PAP Smear will normal results would that mean you are not infected or does it not test for that ???

Response from Dr. Aberg

A PAP test does not check for HIV. You have to ask your doctor specifically to check for HIV. This can be done as a blood or saliva test which you must consent for.

Would Grave's Disease give false posiive on HIV test
just diagnosed
