Do you know how often to get one? According to Health Day News, "Figuring out when to be screened for this cancer or that can leave women's heads spinning.Screening guidelines have been changing for an array of cancers, and sometimes even the experts don't agree on what screenings need to be done when. But for cervical cancer, there seems to be more of a general consensus on which women need to be screened, and at what ages those screenings should be done." more

Does your doctor discuss tests and guidelines with you?

I just wanted to point out that for us, especially if you don't not have regular cycles, you should get a yearly test or at the very least every two years.  Talk to your  doc about it.  :)  Laura
