when you get a pap what do they check for?

like when you go in for just a routine exam and they make you pee in cup? do they do a pregnancy test or would they ask you first if your were pregnant? i have to go tomorrow for my anual and i have a 8 month old and nursing so i nver have a period, so if i dont tell them i could possibly be preg would they likely tell me ? i dont wanna say i think i could be b/c i am on the no estrogen pill but not awesome at taking it... just wondering ... .

  • A pap smear doesn't show if you're pregnant or not...
    It checks for abnormal cells to test for cancer, and some STD's as well.

  • I only have to pee in a cup if I am preggo, never on a routine exam. And unless you express that you may be preggo, they won't test for it.

  • They will probably take a pregnancy test out or routine. When you are breastfeading you may not get pregnant or have a period.
