    Never got around to it, even though it was free a few years ago for women under 26 (which obviously I would've been at the time.)

    I know quite a few ppl who would and have taken information like that literally. Especially when it comes from 'reliable' sources.

    A few people who don't understand the words 'can' and 'up to 90%' does not equal an untruth.

    This thread is kinda ridiculous.
    I'm all up to date with my pap smears. It takes 10 mins of my life. Yeah no one looks forward to getting it done but if it meant the difference between life or death, then I'll be "smart" and get it done! I'll be the one having a longer life with my babies !! Sorry if that seems harsh but it's how I feel

    Answering the OP

    I have mine done the week of my even birthday. It make it easy to remember. Unless I am pregnant. I will never have one when I am pregnant again. It caused me to have a miscarriage.

    I get mine yearly after watching someone in my family go through cervical cancer. I've been vacinated and will pay for my DD to be vacinated when the time comes.

    It is a personal choice surely. Read the information, make a decision. Don't attack others on the decision they have made.
    I'm 35 and never had one.

    Sometimes it isn't about 'being smart'. Some women find the whole process to traumatic due to sexual assault.

    My current doctor and my previous doctor weren't happy about it but understand my decision.

    They say every 2 years from when you start being sexually active or every 2 years from 18.
