New Guidelines for Pap Smears
In the same week as controversial recommendations for less mammogram screenings for women are released, now there are new guidelines for pap smears.
Guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists indicate women should start getting pap smears at 21--not 18 like previously suggested.
Women in their 20s with normal pap results can get tested every two years, instead of every year.
According to the new guidelines, women in their 30s can wait three years between screenings.
