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! Dr B
