Tests and Screening

As a woman, there are things you can do to stay healthy.

Cervical Cancer Screening (Pap test)

  • Women ages 21-64 should be getting a Pap test every two to three years unless your doctor advises you differently.
  • Pap tests starting at age 21, and every two years for most women under age 30
  • Pap tests every three years for women 30 years and older who have had three normal previous screenings
  • Check with your medical provider about when and how often you should have a pap test.
  • Neighborhood sends Pap test reminders during your birthday month to remind you to have this very important test.

Chlamydia Screening

Who should be tested:

  • Sexually active women age 25 years old and younger should be tested for chlamydia every year.
  • All pregnant women should be tested during their first prenatal care visit.
  • Older women with risk factors for chlamydia should talk to their medical provider about when to be tested.

Any woman who is sexually active should talk to her medical provider. Your medical provider can decide when chlamydia testing should be done.
