Women’s health does not nearly get enough recognition as it should. It is a heavily significant subject that affects the lives of half the population yet receives little to no exposure. Women my age are unaware of what screenings to get or what tests to take to maintain our physical needs and prevent life-threatening illnesses. One of the most important screenings that all women should be aware of is the Pap test. The Pap test is a lifesaving test that screens for precancerous and cancerous cells that can be caused by HPV. Before the Pap test, cervical cancer was the #1 cancer-related killer among women. Now it is #15. However, newly proposed changes to women’s health guidelines could eliminate the Pap test for those under 25, leaving many women vulnerable to incomplete testing. Being aware of this information, I plan to get my Pap test as soon as possible and notify as many women as I can about the importance of this test. Having access to this testing at the recommended intervals is crucial for ALL women so they can live healthy, stress-free lives. No guidelines should be able to take that away from us.
