Our women’s health services include:
An important part of a woman's overall health is her once-a-year well woman visit. A well woman visit includes a breast and pelvic exam, and may or may not include a Pap smear test.
Current Pap smear test guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists:
- Pap smear testing should begin at age 21
- Women ages 21 - 29 should have a Pap smear test every 3 years
- Women ages 30 - 65 should have a Pap smear test and an HPV test every 5 years (preferred), although it is acceptable to only have a Pap smear test every 3 years
- Women may be eligible to stop having Pap smear tests after age 65 depending on their medical history. Please speak with your women’s health practitioner to discuss your eligibility
