  • Wow. alot of misconceptions.GYN visits are not only for pregnancy or for certain ages!
    once you become sexually active it is important to go once a year! It not only check for stds, pregnancies but cervical cancer or any abnormal changes to could cause a potential health risk!

    I do go every year and thinks its important every woman should as well.

  • I go every year-ish when I remember too but I'm not extremely punctual about it.

  • I was going every year, but I canceled in 2012 when they stopped doing HALO tests. I had an ablation done in 2009 so I don't have real periods anymore, I am not having any more babies, and I think at my age I no longer need paps yearly.

  • I was going a lot there for a while after I had an abnormal pap and got an IUD, but then I lost my IUD. I just recently went in November to get the IUD out and get a pap. I didn't get a conclusive result from the pap, so I'm scheduled for May for a repeat.
