To make a Pap Smear test as accurate as possible, there are several things women are recommended to avoid.
For 48 hours before a Pap test, do not:
• Have sex
• Use tampons
• Use vaginal lubrication
• Insert creams, suppositories, or medication into the vagina
• Use vaginal sprays or powders
Also, do not schedule a Pap test while on your period or you are a virgin.
