How Do I Prepare for a Pap Smear in NYC, Queens, and Long Island?

There are a few things you can do to prepare for your Pap Smear at Garden OB/GYN, just to ensure you get the most out of your visit and to help your doctor better understand your health.

It’s helpful to:

  • Reschedule if you got your period
  • Not make an appointment during the time you anticipate to menstruate.

If you’re due for a Pap smear, try to schedule your appointment on a day when you’re not on your period because menstrual flow could affect your results. Or if you need a blood draw, you might need to fast for several hours beforehand, but you can ask the caring team at Garden OB/GYN ahead of time if this applies to you.
