Yearly mammogram: It is recommended that women over 40 get a yearly mammogram with a clinical breast examination. As far as the frequency of pelvic exam and pap smear it would be best to check with your primary health care provider or gynecologist. Perhaps another expert on HealthTap can answer that for you.
