I have to say I am slightly worried about this.Went to the doc because of abnormal bleeding and after having an awful examination(I'm sure she was after my tonsils,but went in the wrong end by mistake:rolleyes:)she said I had a lot of inflammation around the cervix.Off for a smear tomorrow,oh,joy!how we all love those.....anyway,would I be right in thinking that this can happen in Lupus patients quite often?you can reassure me all you like ladies,
thanks,
Julsie

I just had a repeat pap after my first pap came back "midly abnormal". Doctor said there was inflammation. Repeat pap had same results. Now I have to go back for another one in another six months. I was wondering the same thing today. I also have pleural thickening (which can apparently be a result of lupus) and am wondering if the lupus is also causing inflammation of my uterus. This leads me to wonder what the heck else is inflamed that I don't know about.

My paps have come back with inflammation for years...I never knew it, the reports that I requested later showed it, but the docs never mentioned it, so I guess it wasn't a big thing. I just figure that I have inflammation practically every where, so why not there too, right? Let us know how you get on and what the doc says. Good luck!
