Need more data...: Depends on whether results were abnormal (vice unsatisfactory), why they took your uterus and whether or not your cervix remains. Need to discuss results with doc who ordered tests. If you do not have a cervix, did not have a true abnormal test and have never had high grade precancerous lesions might want to quit having this test. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org
