Colposcopy is a special way for your doctor to look at your vulva, vagina, and cervix . Sometimes during this procedure, your physician will take a biopsy.

Colposcopy is usually performed after certain types of abnormal Pap tests.

It can also be performed to:

  • Check a sore or other problem (such as genital warts).
  • Follow up on abnormal areas seen on a previous colposcopy.
  • Look at the cervix for if HPV is present or if a patient shows high predisposition to HPV.
