Anyone here who hasn't had a pap smear?

I know I was supposed to after having my baby 2 years ago, but I kept putting it off and off.
I know I know, bad idea, but I just made an appointment today to get one.

Just wanted to know if anyone else just didn't get one?

  • my baby is 16 months and I haven't had one since I was pregnant with her...I know it's not an excuse but I dont have insurance right now...I don't mind going to the dr and getting one but I just can't afford it right now

  • I have had them before, but I haven't had one in the last few years, I know I should, but I really hate it, and we have no history to justify the expense (no insurance).

  • I wish I could go long periods of time without getting one (especially since I don't have insurance) but I can't afford not to.
