Get Your PAP Test
We are excited to celebrate International Women's Day by offering brief gynecological consultations, which include a PAP Smear test, with Dr. Cento Ester for the discounted price of €95 on the 9th of March, 2024.
To secure your spot and enjoy this limited-time opportunity, all you need to do is make an appointment before or on March 8th. We want to ensure that as many women as possible can benefit from this offer, so we encourage you to act fast.
What does the gynecological consultation include?
The gynecological visit is tailored to the individual's needs and purposes.
During the consultation, you can expect to have a conversation with the doctor about your health concerns, menstruation, contraception, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), or menopause. You will also have an internal examination which will include a Pap smear exam. This can detect early signs of cervical cancer and other reproductive health issues.
If you would like to move forward with other tests, such as ultrasounds, STDs, or blood tests, our gynecologist can also perform them at an additional cost.
PAP Smear Test
A Pap Smear test is a procedure to screen for cervical cancer in women. The good news is that it's a quick and straightforward process!
During the test, you'll lie down on an examination table with your knees bent, and your doctor will gently insert a speculum into your vagina. This instrument allows them to see your cervix clearly. Samples of your cervical cells will then be collected using a soft brush and a flat scraping device called a spatula.
To ensure that your Pap smear is most effective, avoid intercourse, or using any vaginal medication for two days prior to your Pap smear. If possible, try not to schedule your Pap smear during your menstrual period.

How long does the consultation and examination take?
The duration of the consultation is approximately 15-20 minutes. The PAP Smear examination is quick and usually takes a few minutes.
Can I be tested while I'm on my period?
You can still be tested while on your period. However, many patients don't feel comfortable being examined during this time.
Are there any tips that I should follow prior to my appointment?
Avoid intercourse, douching, or using any vaginal medicines or spermicidal foams, creams or jellies for two days before having a Pap smear, as these may wash away or obscure abnormal cells.
Why should I get the PAP Smear done?
A Pap smear is used to detect abnormal cervical cells which might indicate cervical cancer.
The Pap smear is usually done in conjunction with a pelvic exam. In women older than age 30, the Pap test may be combined with a test for human papillomavirus (HPV) — a common sexually transmitted infection that can cause cervical cancer. In some cases, the HPV test may be done instead of a Pap smear.
What should I expect from the procedure?
During the test, you will lie down on the exam table with your knees bent. Your specialist will gently insert a speculum into your vagina to open your cervix. Then samples of your cervical cells will be collected.
When can I expect to receive my test result?
You can expect the results of the PAP Smear test in 10 working days.
