Menopausal. Any effective methods of detecting cervical cancer?

Hi I am menopausal and do not want to endure any more painful pap smears. I have had no history of abnormal cells and have always received the report that my cervix is very healthy. Are there any other effective methods of detecting cervical cancer . Are the blood tests effective enough. I am 58 years old and in very good health ( cross fingers). I do not wish to use estrogen vaginal creams.

At present there are no blood to test to detect cervical cancer. still the best to detect is pap smear. If your three consescutive pap smear test are negative, and no other high risk factors, interval of pap smear can be increased. this screening test is required upto 65 to 70 years.
