Study: Women can go 3-5 years between pap smears

Posted: Updated:

Most women can wait 3 to 5 years for their next pap smear, as long as their last test showed no signs of trouble.

That’s according to new guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

The tests examine cells scraped from the cervix that are vital in finding signs of cervical cancer.
