If you've had surgery to remove all or part of your uterus — a total or partial hysterectomy — you may or may not continue to need routine Pap tests.
A Pap test, also called a Pap smear, is a routine screening test for early diagnosis of cervical cancer.
Many factors will influence your health care provider's recommendation for your need to continue Pap test after a hysterectomy, including your age, the type of surgery you had and the reason for it, and your family history — particularly whether your mother took the drug diethylstilbestrol (DES) while she was pregnant with you.
Learn more from Dr. Tatnai Burnett, a Mayo Clinic OB-GYN, about the need for Pap tests after a hysterectomy.
