  • Yeah thats normal... Im shocked that the DR didnt tell you to watch for that and not to worry.. My Dr tells me every time to not be worried if im spotting after a pap.. its normal! Congrats!

  • Often times the cervix gets bruised a little during the exam and causes light spotting. Its nothing to worry about but if you see BRIGHT red and a lot of it call your doc or go to the er. I spot after every pap the joys of being a woman I guess

  • Oh yeah, completely normal from irritation of the cervix. It's usually dark colored. I spot after each exam and often after sex. Dr. still always says it's okay, some are just more irritable than others.
