The Pap Test

on February 24, 2012

I was never conscious or concerned about my health, often times i take it for granted. Except lately when there were “stuff” happening that i know i need to look into. My dear OB told me i need The Pap Test.

what is a pap test anyway? i learned that…

The Pap test, also called a Pap smear, checks for changes in the cells of your cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens into thevagina (birth canal). The Pap test can tell if you have an infection, abnormal (unhealthy) cervical cells, or cervical cancer.

I heard of this word a dozen times before but like any other woman i ignore it. I didn’t know its importance till now. I just had mine this noon time. It wasn’t a pleasant experience actually. it felt awkward and awful ( but i am not scaring you women off) It is just me getting paranoid about it. Lol. it was painful – or my brain was getting making these signals that is it painful which in fact it isn’t..

But it was indeed awkward.

Dear OB still told me that it is important because…

A Pap test can save your life. It can find the earliest signs of cervical cancer. If caught early, the chance of curing cervical cancer is very high. Pap tests also can find infections and abnormal cervical cells that can turn into cancer cells. Treatment can prevent most cases of cervical cancer from developing.

Getting regular Pap tests is the best thing you can do to prevent cervical cancer. In fact, regular Pap tests have led to a major decline in the number of cervical cancer cases and deaths.

so there i did it. but results will be out after a week. Hopefully it will be good.

But if there is one thing i learned here – sometimes you need to look after yourself.
