You do not need pap smears unless your hysterectomy was for cancer.
In terms ofd the HRT, it depends how old you are and what your risk factors are for osteoporosis and breast cancer.

i would think you should still have pap smears, don't they check for cancer of the cervix when they do that? anyway, i would go once a year anyway... good luck.
