There's another thread about this topic, btw.

In as much as you can control your thinking on this, really try not to freak out about it. I've had an abnormal pap and it was a yeast infection. A friend of mine had it and it was HPV (very common std that shouldn't affect your baby). Don't spend too much time on Webmd. I find that whenever I use the internet to self-diagnose I always end up with cancer or AIDS. lol.

yeah-please don't worry too much! your body doesn't need that stress right now! it's probably nothing, or something really simple to take care of. sometimes, a technician that reads the pap slides just got an unclear slide (meaning they had trouble reading it-either from where you are in your cycle or due to a poor sample) so to be safe you get told it's an abnormal pap so they can check you again for a clearer result. there are a million reasons for an abnormal pap and most of them are something really benign!

think positive thoughts and keep us posted!
