Yes: It is recommended to have gynexam at least once a year.

You still: Need a yearly exam. The evolution of uterine cancer is difficult to predict but your doc may want another sample. You could try Progesterone in one of its many forms, 10 days every month, 2 month or 3 months for an orderly "withdrawel bleed" this would likely reduce your chances of endometrial hyperplasia which, in some instances, can be a precursor to endometrial cancer. Gd luck.

It'd be wise for you: To have your annual gynecological exam. If you have 3 consecutive annual pap's smear, then every 3 years should be fine. Unless there's unusual spotting or pelvic pain . God bless you !

Biopsy of what part : Of uterus? It would be a good idea to get a check up and discuss the frequency of follow-up checks with your doctor who has more information about the biopsy results and your health status.
