Hello, and i hope I can help you today.

The Pap smear report above states that there is no sign of cervical dysplasia or cancer, however there is inflammation present due to a vaginal yeast infection (Candida). The "NIL PAP" and "NIL" HPV abbreviations at the end may indicate that there was an HPV test performed on the specimen, but there is no indication of the result.

So this PAP smear was essentially normal, except there was yeast present on the smear. If you have symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection (white discharge, itching, burning, redness or irritation) you should buy an over-the-counter product that treats vaginal yeast infections and it should cure your symptoms.

I hope I was able to adequately answer your question today and that my advice was helpful.

Best wishes,

Dr. Brown
