Do you need smears if you're not sexually active

Not had sex for 10+ years and highly unlikely to ever do so again. I'm only in my early 30s. I've had 2 so far and not had sex since the first one. I'm more than happy to go for it but it's a lot of faff, will take me pretty much all day, unless they can come to me. Can district nurses do smears??

Yes you do, it's really important it's nothing to do with having sex
You will have to go to them

Exactly this

Thought that would be the response. I was friends with someone who was a virgin when her first smear was due and she was told she didn't need it then. It was for religious reasons though so don't know if that made any difference.
