“Today let’s talk about women’s health! 👸🏻✨As a woman and mother, I am an advocate of Pap and HPV tests. I believe that every woman should have the right to get tested and have a chance to fight cervical cancer and live.

I want to be here for my children, and every woman should have access to Pap and HPV tests. But new changes to the guidelines have recommended eliminating the Pap, leaving thousands of women vulnerable to incomplete testing. Not only do these two tests work well together to give a comprehensive screening, eliminating the well-known Pap test could lead women to believe they do not need access to the regular exams that protect their reproductive health. We can’t have that.”

Today let’s talk about women’s health! 👸🏻✨ As a woman, and mother, I am an advocate of Pap and HPV tests.🙋🏽‍♀️ I believe that every woman should have the right to get tested and have a chance to fight cervical cancer and live. For years, it has been recommended that cervical cancer screening tests for women include the Pap and HPV test. The Pap test has been leading the fight against cervical cancer for decades. Before introduction of the screening, cervical cancer was the #1 cancer killer of women. Now, it’s #14. That’s a drastic difference. I want to be here for my children, and every woman should have access to Pap and HPV tests. But new changes to the guidelines could eliminate the Pap, leaving thousands of women vulnerable to incomplete testing. We can’t let that happen. Not only do these two tests work well together to give a comprehensive screening, eliminating the well-known Pap test could lead women to believe they do not need access to the regular exams that protect their reproductive health. Thank you to @protectthepap for advocating for women’s health!💕 #protectthepap
