Reasons You May Need to Get Pap Smears More Frequently
(http://ow.ly/XkEA30kvtRt)

If you're older than 21, you should be getting regular pap smears. Typically a healthy woman between the ages of 21 and 29 should get a pap smear every three years, and women between the ages of 30 and 64 should get one every five years. Women over 65 however, should ask their doctors if they should continue getting pap smears.

Depending on their family and health history some women may need pap smears more frequently if:
- You have a weakened immune system due to chemotherapy, an organ transplant, or steroid use
- You are HIV-positive
- Your mother was exposed to DES (diethylstilbestrol) while pregnant
- You've had cervical cancer in the past
- You've had abnormal pap results in the past
