Pap and HPV Testing

Pap tests and HPV tests are two types of cervical cancer screenings. People get routine screenings to prevent cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer worldwide.

If you have questions about what you can do to prevent cervical cancer and whether you should get a Pap test or HPV test, please give us a call or schedule an appointment.

Pap Test Results

If you have testing done at Planned Parenthood, we’ll contact you ONLY if your results are abnormal. If this is the case, we’ll give you a call to ask you to come back for follow up. Planned Parenthood does not contact patients if the results are negative. Patients can view negative results in the Patient Portal. If you want to confirm a negative result or want a copy for your records, please call the health center or stop by for a copy.

Re: Pap Tests

If you’ve had a Pap test within the past three years, and are between the ages of 21 and 66, please bring the following information to your appointment:

  •          Name of doctor/location who provided the Pap test
  •          Approximate date of the Pap test
  •          Result of the Pap test

This information is to ensure we provide only the health care you need. If you’re not sure if you received a Pap test, then please bring the information above to the best of your ability.

If you received your Pap test at Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, then you do not need to bring in this information.

If you have any questions, please give us a call at 314-531-7526.
