Ruby, a mom of two, knows how easy it is to put off a routine Pap smear, and she has a message for her family and friends, and all who aren’t keeping up with this important medical check up.
“My previous Pap Smear just 2 years ago was all clear. This one wasn’t. It showed High Grade cell changes that needed to be removed. In just two years I had those changes. Imagine if I never went and got my regular smear? Imagine if I left it for years and years, and those cells ended up turning into cancer?
I wasn’t originally going to share this with everyone, because it is a personal subject. But the reason I am is because I have spoken to a few friends and family members about it, and firstly – a lot have been through the same thing, but secondly, a lot also don’t get regular pap smears!
We are lucky enough that our healthcare system is able to pick up these changes before they turn into something worse – so please utilize that.”
