For what colposcopy is done ?

Hi , i have had about three pap sears done in the past year and a half due to being pregnant and moving around alot. But my most recent one came back abnormal and the doctor wants me to come in and get a colposcopy done. Why does he really want me to get this procedure done? Would he have me get this doen if i had an infection? Would i also have to get this done if the pap smear came back as ASC-US?

Hi Esther
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Yes you will have to go for colposcopy.
Do not worry unnecessarily. Colposcopy is diagnostic as well as therapeutic technique and you need not be scared of it.
Good Luck!
