Pap Smear


Good news is on the horizon. 

From 2017 Australia will align it's recommendations with other countries that advise a pap smear test every three years between the ages of 21 and 65  for women who have not had a hysterectomy and who have not had previously abnormal smear results.

There may also be an option for a smear test combined with another test to detect a wart virus done every five years from ages 30 to 65.

In the meantime Australian women are advised to continue with the previously recommended smear every two years.
