A little history: Last year in January I got an abnormal PAP (first one ever, yikes!). The doctor suggested that I have another PAP the following month, and thank God it was normal again. About 8months to a year before the negative PAP I took my doctor's advice and I got about 3 maybe 4 HPV Gardisil shots, can't really remember how many.
Now I'm not a virgin, but I'm not sexually active at the time. So this is my question: Is it really necessary for me to get a PAP every year since I got the HPV shots, and last year's PAP turned out ok? I haven't had one this year, but I'm not really sure if I should. Just looking for a little advice..thx!
