OMG I realized I missed my Pap this year.

I can't believe I have done this. First time ever. I had a baby in 2008 and I guess I lost a year somewhere. LOL. I think I was due for my yearly in August 2009 and I am now preg again. Is this dangerous that I have gone 1.5 years and when they do one at my first prenatal appt. will the results be as accurate as if I wasn't preg? Thanks everyone.

  • No you are fine. They are actually now saying 1 every two years is fine. Don't worry you get one when you are preg.

  • You are fine. Healthy women can go 2 years before getting paps. You'll get one now that you are pregnant.
