I don't know if the annual pap test is unneccesary or not - although I am usually opposed to mass screening because of false positives. Additionally, there are alternatives to the pap test now.

What I have a strong objection to is the fact that so many ob/gyn providers insist on the gynecological exam (including the Pap) prior to prescibing birth control. While there has been a few studies linking cervical cancer with *long term* birth control use, even those studies are far from conclusive.

I just don't like to be summarily subjected to anything invasive.
