Confusing question: You mention a pap smear and then talk about virginity. The need to do surveillance for cervical cancer does not stop if you are not sexually active. Some triggers of this problem are related to sex, but not all. The procedure can be done with minimal intrusion in a modified pelvic exam, but it should not be avoided due to your status.Newer technology can also supplement the exam.
