You should have a pap smear within a year of becoming sexually active, although the chances of cervical problems under the age of 25 years is extremely low. This does not have to be done by a gynaecologist. It can be done by a GP or trained clinic sister.

You should start going for annual check-ups from whenever you are sexually active. Cervical cancer doesn't really discriminate against age.
