    For men only

    My wife had her annual physical yesterday and said if her test come back clean she won't need another (guess I have to say it) pap smear for 5 years. They now test for some virus and if you don't have it and have been married 10 years you are very low risk for cervical cancer. My response was the woman knows if she has been with another man in the last 10 years but she can't know for sure if her husband has been with anyone else. The doctors are setting up a big decision here for a man that has cheated on his wife when she comes home and tells him about her 5 year grace period. Tell her you have cheated may get you a divorce,don't tell her and you may be giving her cancer.What would or even will you do when this happens to you?

    If a man has cheated on his wife with unprotected sex, why should he worry about cervical cancer? He's obviously not worried about HIV.

    Personally, I don't believe a doctor makes a decision on when a woman should have a PAP based on anything to do with her husband's conduct. If your wife (any wife) had had a previous PAP with an HPV-positive result, the doctor would have recommended more frequent testing.

    The poll question/answer choices presupposes that cheating, in fact, occured; thus I cannot answer. I would suppose, however, that one willing to cheat would also be quite willing to lie (or to remain silent) as well.

    Hmm - interesting (I'll avoid the poll since I'm not a dude but opinion will still be given - hereby declaring my femininity) . . . this is interesting because I know a lot of women who have one once a year anyway as is the long-given advice . . . or none at all. It's really a personal choice.

    I don't ever intend on having a pap ever again - a million while you're pregnant, I think I'm good.

    That being said - such things can lay dormant for countless years - it doesn't mean that your spouse has cheated if you have something after 15 years of marriage . . . it just means that at some point you maybe contracted one of the many viruses that can lead to cysts, pollups, abnormal growths - etc. Not even that - some things they are looking for are entirely not of the contracted variety. Some things have unknown causes and origins...etc. They are looking for abnormalities - not traces of viral-only infections. The majority of such abnormalities are believed to be viral but not all are.

    Women need to know that testing positive for something does not mean that your husband actually cheated on you.
