Cervical cancer screening should start at age 21
Women age 21-29 need a Pap test every 3 years
Women 30-65 need a Pap test and an HPV test every 5 years (preferred) or just a Pap test every 3 years
Women can stop having cervical cancer screening after age 65 if their provider says it is ok.
Regardless of when your last Pap test was done – every woman needs a yearly wellness exam
