Herworld (Singapore) - - GET TESTED -

If you are di­ag­nosed with pre­can­cer­ous changes of these cells, you’ll have to go for day surgery – per­formed un­der lo­cal or gen­eral anaes­thetic – to re­move the part of your cervix which con­tains the ab­nor­mal cells.

You might ex­pe­ri­ence pain sim­i­lar to men­strual cramps for a few hours after the surgery, but you’re ikely to be able to go back to work the next day. Some vagi­nal dis­charge is ex­pected for up to six weeks, so wear a panty liner. You’ll see your doc­tor for a fol­low-up within four to six weeks, and you’ll do an­other Pap smear about six months down the road to make sure ev­ery­thing’s in or­der.
