I am a 24 year old female in a long-term relationship with a girl. We have both never been in a relationship with anyone else nor had any sexual activity with other people of either gender before. Do I need to get my Pap smear test done? I have recently been to my gynecologist and was told that I could eventually get it done, but I was not given a date for it. I am scared because I have never had any penetrative sex and even tampons are uncomfortable to me. So, I think the test would be very painful.
