A pap smear is one of the most reliable tools we have at our disposal
for being able to identify precancerous and cancerous cervical cells.
Women should get their first Pap smear by age 21. Women between the
ages of 21 and 29 should receive a Pap smear every three years. Women
between the ages of 30 to 59 may choose to get a Pap smear every
three years or an HPV and Pap test together every 5 years.
