Are you not a fan of going to the OBGYN and throwing your leg up in stirrups? Well if you’re over 30, you don’t need to go as often. I was searching to find the study that says this and couldn’t find it, but according to my regular doctor and my naturopath the new research is that after 30 you only need a yearly every 2-3 years. So you’re not out of the woods completely! And I would check with your personal doctor.
It’s a good example of there being different opinions and different ways of interpreting info. I found some sites that talked about needing one every year. So, just so you know!
