OBGYN Annual ?

This might be TMI , but do you get yours every year ? I am shocked to see how many women dont get theirs done every year. My own mother hasnt been in over 10 years. My MIL hasnt been in 36 years.

I have been going every year since I was 16.

What about you ladies ?

I waited 2 years to go this time.  I read that if you are in your 30's and have had 3 normal exams in a row you can wait a couple years.  We have no history of cancer and I have always had normal results (I am 32).

Once you get to 30 years old you don't have to go every year, just every 3 years.  So that's what I do now.
