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.
Pictured are Roscoe State Bank employees, Kim Figueroa, Kristi Fox and Vicki Bowen with the Sweetwater Middle School pep rally game winner, Emerald Torres.
Emerald won $50 for throwing the most balls through the pink cancer ribbon.

As your child becomes a teenager, you may feel you no longer have much influence on your teenâ€™s decision making, especially when it comes to details like dating, abstinence, sex, and birth control.
The good news is parents count. Recent research shows that when parents communicate their attitudes and values about teen sexuality to their children, their teenagers are less likely to have sexual relations at an early age.
