My papsmear has shown some abnormal sells. My gynie says we try and treat it simptomatically and re-do the papsmear in 3 months time. The sells could indicate cancer. I need a second opinion? Also, my husband has had some prostrate problems, as well as his father, we had sex the previous night. Could it be his sells they picked up in the smear, I did duche afterwards?
Unlikely to be your husband's cells. There are degrees of abnormal/precancerous and it depends on what you had on papsmear. Occasionally, the abnormal cells could be as a result of an infection..hence your gynae may want to first treat and then repeat.
