  • I'm thinking you could bleed a little and still be pregnant... It's a tough one b/c everyone has different experiences w/ pregnancies. Maybe just the pap smear itself made you bleed.

  • Yes you could be pregnant. It is usually normal sometimes to bleed after a pap smear. If you still have not had your period in a couple weeks do the U/S and get a blood test. I don't think no one really likes the waiting game.

  • There could still be a small chance that you are pregnant, even though the test came back negative. Just wait it out and see if you have your period or not.. Bleeding after a pap smear can be normal though if the doctor aggravated something.

  • I bled for almost a week after my pap when I was first pregnant - Dr said the cervix is really sensitive when you are pregnant, so your bleeding is probably brought on from manipulation of that. Good Luck!!

  • Urine tests are not that accurate if you are only about a week or so late. Like the previous poster said, your cervix is very sensitive during pregnancy, so the bleeding you are having could be from the pap smear. When I was pregnant and had a pap smear I bled almost like my period for a day or two. Good luck!
