It is quite common to have a bit of bleeding after a pap smear. A good collection of cells requires the use of a "brush" for the inner canal of cervix and a "broom" for the outer surface of the cervix. The surfaces are literally scraped to collect cells for analysis for both dysplasia as well as for the presence of hpv. Unless the bleeding is very heavy, what you describe is normal. My greater concern is why are you getting pap smears every 6 months? Do you have history of a leep conization for dyslasia? Cervicitis - a benign condition - can also cause bleeding after a pap smear. Do you also have bleeding after sex? Make sure that all of these paps you are having are normal and I would request copies of the actual reports to confirm this.
