  • Unless you are having issues, the norm seems to be one year ... at least that's what most insurance companies will pay for. I go once a year.

  • I go about once a year but I have had a full hystermentary so I go once a year since my doctor still wants to see me every year.

  • Agree with anon - unless prior issues or history of problems.... a year is the norm.

  • I go once/year. I had an abnormal pap a few years back and after that one I had to go back in 6 months, but it's back to a year.

  • I go once a year, but my mom goes every 6 months, but that is because she had to have surgery cause she had cervical cancer so she has to get checked every 6 months to make sure it doesn't come back

  • I go every 6 months.

  • I think it is pretty normal to go once a year. If you are older and have had some problems then maybe more often, but once a year should be good enough, I would not wait for two years to go.
