In 2016, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) released new cervical cancer screening guidelines. The big news?
Yearly Pap tests may be a thing of the past for many women. How often you should get screened for cervical cancer now depends on your age and health history.
While less frequent Pap smears are recommended for many women, ACOG still encourages a yearly visit to your gynecologist to discuss health maintenance and lifestyle issues, as well as whether a pelvic exam is needed.
