Background: The aim of this study was to outline the Pap smears rate done in women with total hysterectomy, sent to an urban diagnostic center that attends Mexican Government workers in the Instituto de Seguridad y Servicios Sociales de los Trabajadores del Estado (ISSSTE: State´s Employees´ Social Security and Social Services Institute) at Mexico City. Methods: It was a retrospective study on Pap smear reports taken in 2017. The reports came from users of four family medicine clinics and a general hospital´s gynecology service. Demographic facts, instruments for collection, kind of insurance (ISSSTE-insurance or non-insurance), and total hysterectomy history were evaluated. Results: From 4989 reports, 600 (12%) had a total hysterectomy history. In the patients with ISSSTE-insurance, 586 of 4618 (12.68%) had a Pap smear whereas in the patients with non-insurance, only 14 of 371 (3.7%) had it, and this difference was significant (P < 0.00001; OR 3.7, 95% IC 2.15-6.36). Conclusions: Although Pap smear is not indicated in women with total hysterectomy, this study is still carried out frequently.
