Colposcopy is an examination of the cervix (the neck of the womb) using a specially designed microscope (colposcope).

Why do I need colposcopy?
The main reason for performing colposcopy is to detect pre-cancerous changes of the cervix although other conditions can also be diagnosed during a colposcopic examination. The most common indications for colposcopy are;
• An abnormal smear
• Bleeding after intercourse
• An identified abnormality on the cervix
• Persistent vaginal discharge
• Bleeding between periods

The Pap test (sometimes called a Pap smear or cervical cytology) is a way to examine cells collected from the cervix (the lower, narrow end of the uterus). The main purpose of the Pap test is to detect cancer or abnormal cells that may lead to cancer. It can also find noncancerous conditions, such as infection and inflammation.
