New guidelines published recently by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists urges women 21 and older to have pelvic exams on an annual basis. This announcement comes just months after several groups, including the American Cancer Society said most women need a Pap smear only once every three years.
With the conflicting information, some women are confused about how often they should see their gynecologist. Many women think they should only see an OB/GYN physician for a Pap smear, but that couldnâ€™t be further from the truth.
