I am bad too. I get mine about every 2 yrs or so. Never had a mammogram though.

I'm 34. I get a pap smear once every year.  I had a mammogram when I was 29 or 30 because I had a lump.  Really, the mammogram is not bad at all.

I have an awesome nurse midwife and she has told me that since I am in a monogamous relationship, have been for the past 15 years and especially since neither of us have ever had another partner that I can go 2-3 years between paps..

I am not "old" enough for mammograms yet and never had any breast health issues THANKFULLY.

I haven't had any mammograms... I'm just about to turn 22, so it'll be a while yet.  But I've had a pap done every year since I was pregnant with my first.  But, that's only three... still, I'm pretty determined to make myself keep up with going to the doc every year for one.

I cry every time I get a pap done. It is the most uncomfortable thing in the world for me, before I got pregnant I hadn't had one in about 4 yrs.

I never miss a pap. I get one yearly. My doc basically threatened me not to miss one, lol, since I have a history of bad paps. Never had a mammo yet though.

 every year for both. And a mammogram hurts WAY less than a 3 year old elbow to the boob as they try to muscle into bed with you...
