A borderline result means that very slight changes were found in your cervical smear. The cells are not very abnormal but they�re not quite normal either. These minor changes usually go back to normal on their own and are nothing to worry about. You will be asked to return for a repeat smear, usually in 3 to 6 months, to check if the cells have in fact gone back to normal.

If your repeat smear is normal, your doctor will most likely recommend that you go back to regular screening intervals, but you may be advised to have another smear in six months� time just to be sure the cells have remained normal. If your repeat smear is borderline, you will either be asked to wait a bit longer and have a third smear in a few months, or your doctor may suggest further investigations (colposcopy).
