Is a Pap Test an STD test

A pap test is not an STD test. It is a screening test for cervical cancer, it is actually only one of the screening tests for cervical cancer.  But culture tests, DNA tests, slide tests or other specific STD tests have to be performed if you are being screened for STDs. So do not assume that just because you have gone in for a pelvic exam or just because you have gone in for a pap test, that you have actually had an STD test. Specifically talk it over with your gyno if you have (or will be) tested at your next appointment! Gab is important!
