Been awhile since an exam
The last pelvic exam I had was going to the hospital three years ago for ecoli. I don't currently have an GYN. Could not having this exam for this long be affecting my chances of becoming pregnant?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to check in with me.  I would probably want to do a pap and brief pelvic exam.  The pap is probably the single most important part of the test because it tests for pre-cancerous (and cancerous) lesions of the cervix.  We don't do paps as often as we used to for women in many age ranges, so missing a year or two is probably not critical, BUT it is certainly not a bad idea to be proactive about your health.
Good luck!
