Can we get this woman a Grammy for Most Enthusiastic Rap About Vaginal Health? Seriously, we love that she's making sure women know they need to schedule this crucial test. Experts suggest that you get a Pap smear every three years starting at age 21, and since the Affordable Care Act covers this preventive service for women, there's no reason not to get checked out. If anything is abnormal, then you may get an HPV test on top of that. Starting at 30, it's suggested that women get both tests every five years instead of just the Pap test every three years, as long as the tests come up normal. And if you ever need a reminder, just re-watch this clip until the rap gets stuck in your head.
