    • Abstract:
      The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of different evaluation methods for an Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance (ASCUS) Pap smear on psychosocial characteristics of women. Subjects (N=67) were randomly assigned to an aggressive group (n=22), American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) group (n=24), or conservative group (n=21) for follow-up abnormal cytology at Gundersen-Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, Wl. Subjects completed a baseline survey to examine possible relationships between the Duke-UNC Functional Social Support (DUFSS) Questionnaire, the Abnormal Smears Questionnaire (ASQ), demographic variables, smoking status, sexual history, and concurrent stressors. A one-way analysis of variance was used to compare the three groups to the variables of the ASQ (procedural distress, negative cognitions, and smear distress). Women assigned to the aggressive group had statistically more procedural distress (P=.02) than did women in the ACOG or conservative groups. A Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficient was used to evaluate the relationship between levels of perceived social support and smear distress. The correlation coefficient was -.30 and was statistically different from zero (P=.02). As social support increased, smear distress scores decreased.
