  • I go once a year normally. We've been TTC forever though, so when hubby's here, I go once a month.

  • I usually get one done once a year but we are ttc an have been for about 4 months so I have a feeling I will be having another one pretty soon.

  • I go once a year. I am on BC so you have to see them once a year for your Rx

  • I see a NP and probably going to switch to a CNM soon for well women visits. I go once a year and I never miss a visit. Even if I'm completely broke I get in to see them. Other things I might put off until I get some money but not this. Cervical cancer runs rampant in my family and I'm just at too high a risk to miss appointments. My aunt had a full hysterectomy by the time she was my age, I'm 24.  If you have no problems I think you can go every 3 years.

  • I only went when I was pregnant and then my 6 week postpartum appointment and then 1 other time after that to get my IUD in.
