Also, it should be noted that you can test for HPV, however pap smears do not do that. Pap smears look for abnormal cells on the cervix which can be caused by HPV, but it doesn't test for the virus itself. ThinPrep does test for the actual virus. There are also additional HPV tests that are less invasive being developed. It seems that pap smears will soon be a thing of the past.
