Get checked: If you haven't had one recently, it is recommended to get a pap smear. A pelvic exam will be done in the office, and they will be able to visualize the cervix, check for infection and any lesions suspicious for cancer. They will also take samples of your cells and you may be tested for HPV, the most common sexually transmitted infection. Certain types of HPV increases your risk for cancer.
