Nervous about pap!

Re: Nervous about pap!

If that was happening to a lot of my friend's, then I would be worried too. But what are the odds that you and all of your friends would have cancer? The odds would be amazingly slim. Having no period is not a sign of cancer. Irregular bleeding, and spotting is.

You are doing the best thing and that is going to the doctor regularly, every year for a pap smear. I don't buy into this every other year thing. So get some peace of mind by keeping your gyno appointment. Then make sure you see the doctor every year so if something does come along, they would detect ASAP before it becomes really bad.

What you don't know can kill you. Get the test. But remember that if a doctor tells you you have cancer of the cervix, ask him to research the new findings that it may be a fungis or bacteria & can be cured by shots.
