Genital Warts

Jul 6, 1999

Dear Doctor

2 years ago, my gynae told me that I had genital warts. Since then, I had pap smear every year, the most recent one being in March 1999. All pap smears' results were normal. Do you think I need pap smear every six months or stick to my usual once a year? I had been worrying that I might have cervial cancer. It's not doing me any good worrying like that. I visited my gynae in May 1999 and she said there was no visible warts. What do you think, doctor? Should I stop worrying excessively and carry on with my pap smear once a year? Please advise. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Once a year should be fine. MH
