I am posting this in the general section as i don't want it to be missed but if its not right please move.
I just want to say to all you lovely ladies to have a regular pap smear.I will tell you a story very quickly,please read.
My friend had a post natal pap smear 6 years ago and it came back abnormal.The midwife told her to not worry and to come back and redo in 1 year.Well time moved on and she didn't.........now 6 years later she is having bleeding on and off,pain after intercourse and headaches. I convinced her to go to the doctors,she had a pap smear, it came back CIN 3,she had a cone biopsy done and the cancer has gone past it so now she is having exploratory surgery to see if the cancer has spread to her stomach and spine and vital organs.She will be having a hysterectomy after this is done and whatever other treatment she needs but the prospect isn't looking good for her.
Please don't be a fool like her and let papsmears lapse,it can be caught early in the pre cancerous stage from having them done reguarly.
