Hi,

I usually suggest to my patients to complete the treatment and repeat pap smear test after 3 months. I also advise use of pre and pro biotics for 10 days every month. Once, repeat Pap smear reports are okay then you can repeat the test every year or if you have symptoms like vaginal discharge or vaginal infection.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Purushottam Neurgaonkar, OBGYN
