When we think of self care, we often think of indulging in a bath or splurging on a mani pedi, but real self care comes with advocating for our health! As women we need to make preventative testing a priority. Seriously, getting your Pap is no big deal and is quicker than going to the dentist. And it is vital since the Pap test can detect both cancerous and precancerous cells on the cervix. I get my well-woman exam every year to ensure I’m at my healthiest. Your doctor will recommend how often you should be getting a Pap test. I encourage all of you to start the year out strong and make your appointment today.
