Had tlh w/ ovary, fallopian tubes, and cervix removal. Should I still have a yearly women's physical or is it not necessary since I have no cervix?

Had tlh w/ ovary, fallopian tubes, and cervix removal. Should I still have a yearly women's physical or is it not necessary since I have no cervix?

Women's health: The big question is why did you have your ovaries, tubes, and cervix (not uterus) removed? If it was for a cancerous condition, you should continue to get pap smears every 3-5 years. If not, you don't need any more paps, and there is really no proven benefit to routine pelvic examinations beyond the pap smear. Of course, you need to get regular mammograms starting at age 50. ...Read more
