Dear Bernadette, having a Pap smear is something that every woman of
child-bearing age should have as from age 18 to 20. The Pap smear should ideally
be repeated every 3 years until age 70. It is advisable that you discuss this
with you doctor immediately and preferably before you finally decide to fall
pregnant again. The doctor will also be able to inform you regarding your
individual risks for cervical cancer. (MCH).
