could this cause an abnormal pap?

i went in for my first pap smear..
and i was in the middle of a yeast infection or BV.
i have been treated for BOTH, but still struggle with it..

the doctor gave me medicine for yeast as i left the pap smear.

i just that "that call" today saying i had an abnormal pap smear...
im wondering if that could have caused it, even though they knew i was in the middle of a yeast infection.

Re: could this cause an abnormal pap?

If you had a yeast infection while the pap was performed then it's bound to show in the results. But that's a good thing, because it's the only way to know for sure what you have and how to treat it.
You say you had both bacterial and fungal infections. I used to have problems with both. It seems that when I got BV my doctor gave me antibiotics that completely destroyed the vaginal flora, allowing the yeast infection to occur. So whenever a doctor prescribes antibiotics to kill bacteria make sure to eat yogurt containing Lactobacillus acidophilus or get some kind of supplement to make sure the normal ph balance is mantained.
I didn't know that and nobody explained it to me.

Re: could this cause an abnormal pap?

I went for a pap one time and I had a yest infection - just starting and my Dr just quit and gave me meds and told me to come back so I bet it does show up. They should have told you to come back later after the infection cleared up - now you will have to do this again. crazy dr's
