Post Menopause PAP tests
An_252097 posted:
Is it that important to have PAP smears after menopause? There is no family history of cervical cancer.

A good article that discusses this:

An issue that might play a role here is the number of sexual partners a post menopausal woman might have; there would be a tendency NOT to use condoms since pregnancy would not be a concern at this age. However, concerns over STD's, including HPV which would increase the risk of cervical cancer might increase if this is the scenario.
