Do I need a pap smear every year?

Usually not. Recommendations have recently changed, and if your last few pap smears were normal, your next pap smear will be due 3 years later. We still recommend yearly annual exams, to check blood pressure, health needs and STD screening but pelvic exam may not be needed each year.
