Pap Smear Protocol

The link between cervical cancer and particular strains of the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) will mean fewer pap smears for women.

That doesn't mean women should miss their annual well woman visit, but I won't complain about less speculum time! Read about details in this article from City of Hope.
