well first off if you are over the age of 18 or sexually active... it would be wise, but if you are not then probably not. ok first off their is a new vaccination for cervical cancer-Gardasil, you get it in your arm and you don't need an exam, most doctors require a pregnancy test though. Just pee in a cup, no biggie. http://www.gardasil.com/ has some info about the shot. I've personally had it and its really not bad at all. if you do go to a gyno, try to get a female... I say this not because I am feminist but b/c they have been there and they know what its like to go to an exam, but most likely if its about cervical cancer you won't have an exam. but please check into the Gardasil shot, its better to have a little poke than to have cervical cancer.
