Feeling free and healthy knowing I got my Pap test! I remember when I was reaching the age of 21, the doctor told me that I soon would be getting my Pap test and that SCARED me. All my ladies know how scary that duck looking clamp is. Anyway every time I would go in for a check-up, I would avoid getting it checked until I was 22 almost 23. I won’t lie, it is a bit uncomfortable, but it was so quick that knowing my results were so worth it.⁣..Unfortunately, many women fall behind on their Pap screening because of the fear of doing it, or because they lack the financial resources and medical coverage necessary to afford the test. ⁣BUT did you know The Affordable Care Act covers cancer screening for almost all people including Pap testing. This makes this life saving check up accessible no matter your income level.
