Paxil is a drug belonging to the SSRI group. SSRI's work by stopping the sending neuron from 'reuptake'ing serotonin that sits in the synapse (gap between neurons) for too long. It effectively allows the receiving neuron more time to process said serotonin.
I know serotonin also affects the GI tract but as far as I know it has nothing to do with a woman's reproductive system. I'd check with your Dr but I highly doubt that it would cause abnormal pap smears.
