Is any preparation necessary before a colposcopy?

  • You must make your appointment on a day when you do not have your period.
  • If there is any inflammation in the lower genital tract (cervix, vagina, vulva), it would be best to get treatment before the colposcopy. Therefore, if you have symptoms and suspect anything like that, consult your doctor.
  • Remember to have with you the results of any previous tests (Pap test, HPV test, etc.).
