Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Do you have any abnormal PAP smears and when was your last PAP with the results?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I had a partial hysterectomy last April, so I haven't had a pap since then.
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
What about previous PAP smears?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No, they were abnormal because of the cyst I had
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
What cyst?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Fibroids
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Fibroids are in the uterus.....
But, white spots in the vagina could be vagina warts, this could be dysplasia, but this could also be a yeast infection - and you can try self treating with an over the counter product such as Monistat (miconazole) or Clotrimazole, and if this works then you should need any further evaluation - if this does not work over the weekend, make an appointment to see your ob/gyn this coming week for a pelvic exam and a PAP smear and also possible cultures / biopsy.
