Pussy Health: New guidelines suggest paps every 3 years

New guidelines by the Task Force on Preventative Health Care say that 3-year intervals are enough for cervical cancer screenings. While the rates of cervical cancer and related deaths have dropped dramatically over the past few decades as a result of screenings, Canadian doctors are saying that annual testing is unnecessary.

“Every three years gets nearly all of the benefits and reduces the harms. Just because a little bit is good, doesn’t mean a whole lot more is better,” Dr. James Dickinson said.
