I see the same doctor as last year and we talk about the normal stuff, "how are you feeling", any health concerns", any changes in vaginal region or breasts that concern you?", and everything has been fine, no changes, thank God! So she says "since you have never had an abnormal pap or breast exam, you don't need one today because a woman of your age (30) only needs one every 3 years, unless you want one"? So I said no since you think it's not nessecary. Does this sound off the wall to anyone? I've never had a doctor tell me that.Answer Question

Scroll down the page until you come to "What do medical organizations recommend?"
It's a pretty good explanation.

Is it b/c of financial cutbacks? I thought the rule of thumb was that those were done annually & dental cleanings bi-annually. That seems like a long time in between where, God forbid, something could go undetected. I know they aren't the most enjoyable of experiences, but I think I would've had it done since you were there already. But hey, that's just me.
