Ahhhh the P word. ⠀
Pap Tests (also known as Pap smears) are rarely talked about. In fact as I near 30, it seems that women avoid this topic altogether.
A Pap smear is an important part of your healthcare routine. It can help find abnormal cells that can lead to cancer. Regular exams can help your doctor find most cancers of the cervix early. Cancer of the cervix is more likely to be successfully treated if it is found early. Pap smears can also find cervical and vaginal problems such as precancerous cells and inflammation. Some pretty important stuff if you ask me.
