The Pap Test

The Pap Test will be done if you haven’t had one already in the previous year. Doctors are looking for precancerous changes in the cervix.

If the test shows abnormal cells on the cervix, the physician or nurse practitioner might perform a colposcopy for further diagnosis. However, cervical biopsies and treatment for abnormal cervical changes typically cannot be performed during pregnancy because of the risk of preterm labor.

Why it’s Important:  Early diagnosis and treatment of abnormal cells on the cervix can prevent cervical cancer.
