welcome to healthcare magic forum
herpes generally do not alter pap smear
pap smear is important in mainly cervical lesion -cancer.
HPV can cause endometrial carcinoma but pap smear has no role to detect it as generally women gain immunity against it .
once you have done pap and it is normal than no need to do it again for 2-3 years
i hope i answered your question
