It's your choice: Fou women who are low risk for cervical cancer, manogomous, no prior history of abnormal pap smears and have had the pap smears in a row that are normal, every 3 years is sufficient. The biggest problem is women who are high risk getting pap smears every 3 years as if they were low risk.
