What did your doctor mean "a little funny"? I would ask for what grade the pap smear came back. For example, ASCUS, LSIL. Did you have an HPV test? If not, ask for that too. I have realized that you need to demand answers. I stressed out so horribly with my first OB/GYN because he was so unclear about EVERYTHING. I went through so much. Call your doctor immediately. Ask for a colposcopy with biopsies if necessary. Not knowing is so much worse than knowing.
