Do I need a pap smear every year? My other doctor says, “No.”

The answer to that, and most medical questions, y is typically never a straight yes or no.  Dr. Jill will carefully review your history to decide how often you need to have your cervical cells evaluated.  Remember, pap smears can detect hormonal deficiency, pH imbalances, bacterial overgrowth, STI, and pre-cancerous changes.
