How frequently should I get a Pap test?

On an individual level, the Pap test is usually performed during the annual gynaecological examination, or every two years. In mass screening programmes for the prevention of cervical cancer, it has been proven that in women with no CIN history the Pap test can be done every two or three years. This however is decided by each woman’s physician, based on her age, history, and personal risk factors.
