Pap Smear: This depends on when your last pap smear was taken, your age, and the results of your last pap smear. Most doctors like to have a current normal pap but nothing is set in stone because the guidelines for paps seem to be a moving target and have been changing. It is best to ask the doctor who is putting the implants in you what he requires. Hope this helps! :).
