pap smear?
I had a hysterectomy in 1991 but kept ovaries. I have never been back to a gynae for a pap smear. Is it stil important to have one? Going through menopause been on tablets for 5 years now and still get the occasional hot flush, should the dosage be increased. On estrofem 2mg.

Please advise Thank you

You do not need pap smears. I would not suggest that you increase the dose of HRT as this can increase complications. Rather live with the occasional hot flush.
