More women are following the government's guidelines for cervical cancer screening.

A study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found fewer women under the age of 21 are getting pap tests, and more women between the ages of 21 and 65 are getting them only once every three years.

That's in line with current recommendations.

The study also found fewer women who have had a hysterecomy are getting pap tests, but that number is still about 60 percent.
