    So if someone has had CIN cells (?) in pap smears previously do they still continue to get pap smears?

    Depends.

    The current recommendation is... For high grade lesions. If they've had 2x consecutive yearly smears and hpv tests that were negative then they go back to normal screening which is every 2yrs now and 5yrly as of next year.

    But otherwise it hasn't been agreed upon.

    Terrible idea.

    This pap smear thing isn't going to end well.. Im not talking BH, im talking women's health and equal rights(in theory) just took a massive leap backwards.

    So what I take from this link is that the new test will be better as it is more accurate and most cervical cancers are caused by the HPV virus.

    In regards to women that have cervical cancer not caused by HPV this is their response:

    'There is no effective population screening test for rare neuroendocrine cervical cancers.

    Neither the current Pap test nor the new cervical screening test (primary HPV test) effectively detects rare neuroendocrine cervical cancers.'

    So the new way of cervical screening is thought to be more effective because a pap-smear doesn't do any better of a job detecting non-HPV cervical cancer.

    Am I reading the link wrong?

    Oh that's awful... I've had Precancerous cells (CIN3 from memory) and had a LEEP procedure... I'm a once a year papsmear plus thin prep kinda girl. Have come back clear since so distancing paps but 5 years seems extreme :/
