Confused by result


I’ve just been for my first (long overdue) smear and have received a normal result.

Great news, obviously, but I’m a little confused as the letter says my next is due a year from now. If the result was normal, should it not be every 3?

I’m an enormous hypochondriac - the type that avoids doctors - so I’m a bit wobbly about it.

Any thoughts?

Thanks x


yes, 3 year recall is normal :) 

Sorry, just re read your post.. Unsure why they'd ask you to return in a year if a normal result?! Perhaps give the surgery a call and ask?!
