iihave read that it is best not to do smear tests while pregnant

Hi. I am 22 and 11 weeks pregnant and havn`t had a smear test. i have read that it is best not to do them while pregnant and should be done 3-6 months after giving birth. is this my best option?? im a little scared. tho i do no its nothing like child birth.

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. The PAP smear is not as accurate when you are pregnant so it is best to wait. Don`t worry it is very quick and easy and it is better to do than not. Best wishes, Alex.
