I believe health is wealth and that’s why I do not compromise on the health front 💪 And this brings me to an important part of a woman’s health- cervical health. Cervical cancer was one of the most common cancers affecting women. And because it rarely comes with noticeable symptoms in the early stages, Pap tests are critical for early detection and prevention✔️ The Pap test looks for precancers, which are cell changes on the cervix that might become cervical cancer if they are not treated appropriately. I recall trying to get my first Pap test- I chickened out🤣 but eventually did it when I was pregnant. Wasn’t bad after all🤔 Cervical cancer can occur at any age and that’s why getting routine Pap tests are important. Unfortunately, a recent guideline is threatening to end access to the Pap for women under 25, which I think is a violation of women’s right to health. As a lawyer, I’ve always believed that women’s rights are human rights, and the politicization of women’s health is a pure violation of the human right to health. With that being said, it’s important for all women to take charge of their cervical health. Pap tests save lives, are accessible to almost everyone, and early detection is key. Ask your OB/GYN about the tests and testing schedule that are best for you. Are you up to date on your health maintenance? Have you ever gotten a Pap test?
