Pelvic exam and pap smear
Although many younger women are now being vaccinated against the HPV strain that causes cervical cancer, women who were past the age of 26 when the vaccine was introduced still need to be alert for this deadly form of cancer. (Current vaccine recommendations are for girls and women ages 9 to 26.) Sadly, cervical cancer remains the second leading cause of death from cancer for women worldwide, and the familiar pap smear remains the preventive screening test of choice.

What it is: A swab test in which a swab is inserted into the vagina to remove cells from the cervix; the cells are then examined in a laboratory for signs of precancerous or cancerous changes.

When to start: At age 21 or within three years of becoming sexually active

How often: Every year, although some doctors will allow you to go two to three years between exams if all your results have been normal.
