Colposcopy


Description

A colposcopy usually is performed by your doctor in response to an abnormal Pap smear. The purpose of the colposcopy is to allow your doctor to examine your vagina, vulva and cervix. The reasons for an abnormal Pap smear can vary greatly, but they are caused most commonly by viral infections, such as the human papillomavirus (HPV). Other types of infections might include:

  • Yeast (fungi)
  • Bacteria
  • Protozoa (Trichomonas)

Abnormal Pap test results may also result from naturally occurring cervical cell changes called atrophic vaginitis that are related to menopause. If a Pap test indicates the presence of viruses, infections or cervical cells, then it’s necessary for your doctor to be able to determine the source of the problem. Left untreated, these cervical cell changes continue to grow and can lead to such serious complications as cancer.
