Depends on age: At your age you need pap but if the pap is normal 2-3 years in a row you can do it less often. Mammogram is recommended after age 50. You may wish to check blood lipids, blood sugar and take vaccinations as needed. See this site for more information. http://www.cdc.gov/aging/.

Pelvic exam: A woman over 35 needs a pelvic exam including a bimanual and rectovaginal examination yearly. Your pap smear, if normal, may not need to be yearly.

21: American college of obstetricians and gynecologists (acog) recommend that women have their first pap test at age 21. Previous guidelines stated that it be done 3 years after intercourse. This is not always the rule, women who have other factors such as trauma, being immunocompromised and many others have a different time table of being checked. Please contact your doctor to see what fits you best.
