Hi thanks for your question.
One of most important point in history you have not mentioned is your age. There could be two reasons for this bleeding. First this bleeding could be from uterus for which you need to get yourself investigated. The second cause could be trauma to already inflamed cervix during pap smear, which started bleeding. A good Gynecological examination is very important to determine the cause of bleeding. Re consult your gynecologist who may examine to determine the cause of this bleeding. You may need investigation like ultrasound abdomen for evaluation of this bleeding.
Hope this answers your question
