Pap smears after Hyst?

I've read different things but what is the usual schedule for pap smears after hysterectomy? I hear some go every 6months but at my post op my Dr. told me I didn't need to see him for a year.

Well, next month it'll be time to go but my (stupid) question is, what happens if I have another abnormal pap & they find something wrong? But I waited too long... anyone else with these thoughts?

Pap smears after Hyst?

My doc said that as long as I hadn't had a abnormal pap in the past and that I stayed married to my hubby (with no extra partners for either of us) I wouldn't ever have to have one. But that he liked to do one every 3-5 years to be safe.
So it is kind of on an individual bases. Depending on your history and such. If you want to have dr will said no you can't have on done.

Pap smears after Hyst?

I just had mine last week (since I kept my cervix) It was due at the time of surgery (last year's pap was in April) but we didn't do one then. So, I went to family doc and had one at my physical.

I was told once a year is fine if you have never had an abnormal result.

I was told that since I gave up my cervix I didn't need them anymore since I had never had an abnormal pap.

Pap smears after Hyst?

My Dr. told me even though I wouldn't have a cervix (I did have abnormal paps years ago) that she still believes in an annual exam/pap to keep track of vaginal cells. I have an appointment coming up soon and am going to reconfirm all of this, however, I feel it's best to be safe and keep track of my health after all of this.
