Hiya ladies I don’t know if I am posting in the right forum here but worth a shot! So tomorrow I have an oncology check up and I have to have a vault smear…This has not been explained to me and I am really worried. What is this and doesiit hurt?
A vault smear is a scraping of cells from the upper vagina. Since you've had a hysterectomy there's no cervix left from where to get a sample. It's a routine way of checking to make sure everything's OK
Hi Doodlebug :-)
It's a cervix-free cervical smear :-) Exactly the same as a regular pap test.
Be lucky :-)
