Following that, if results are normal, she should have a Pap every three years in her twenties, according to current recommendations. Women 30 years and older should have a Pap every five years if previous Paps have been normal. If any abnormal results have been found, recommendations for more frequent Pap smears will be given by the healthcare provider.
