“Being a woman is hard and sometimes things in our bodies change suddenly with no explanation as to why. I’ve had yearly Pap smears ever since I can remember and they’ve provided me with so much peace of mind. One incident I recall most clearly happened about two months ago: my period, which was typically regular, suddenly became irregular, giving me cycles that lasted up to 44 days…I did my research and decided that my best bet was to make an appointment and get a screening right away. Thankfully, nothing actually ended up being wrong, but having the ability to confirm that for myself was invaluable.”
