Start at age 18 or at start of sexual activity with yearly PAP's until 2 consecutive negatives.
Than switch to every 3 years

Start at age 18 or at start of sexual activity with yearly PAP's until 3 consecutive negatives.

Does anyone know which one it is?
Is it 2 or three negatives before you switch to the q3 year PAP's?

Someone posted recently about a website that had cancer screening guidelines. That website would solve this.

Thanks

It probably varies with the presence of risk factors (ie. smoking, history of cervical cancer, etc)

however, I have seen the "start at age 18 (or whenever one starts having sexual intercourse) and continue with yearly paps until you have 3 consecutive negative paps". After that it is q3 years till age 70..

hope this helps
