hi there, the PAP smear collected did not contain any cells from the junction of the external part and internal part of the cervix which is the area which shows any abnormality in the first place and so it is crutial to be able to examine that. If no cells were got from that area then the report would be incomplete and the evaluation of this junction is required to rule out any abnormalities. You should get a smear examined again as your present report is inconclusive. The pelvic pain in the bone cannot be explained with UTI and your doctor should look for any other cause. UTI should be treated wi8th a course of antibiotics after culture and senstivity of the urine sample. In the meanwhile take plenty of fluids and syrup citralka in water to take care of the pain.take care.
