Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I get a PAP smear?
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) women age 21 to 29 should have a PAP smear every 3 years. Even though a PAP smear isn't recommended every year, an annual physical/annual well woman exam is. Annual physicals are a great time for you and your OBGYN to discuss various concerns and life changes that you have encountered including abnormal bleeding, contraception options or family planning.
Call (641) 236-2905 to schedule your annual physical today.
