Re: Smear test as a virgin

If you've never been sexually active, you may decide not to go for cervical screening when you are invited. But you can still have a test if you want one.

Cervical cancer usually develops very slowly. It is estimated that it takes between 10 and 20 years for the virus infection to develop into abnormal cervical cells, and then on into cervical cancer. As cervical cancer develops so slowly, it is highly unlikely that women over 64 who have been regular...

For women aged 25 to 49, it's every three years and for women aged 50 to 64, it's every 5 years provided they don't have any abnormal results. If someone has abnormal results then more regular sme...

Re: cervical screening

Women should have access to as many information as they are likely to handle. Evidence based information delivered in a lay way empowers women to make their own choices. Quite often our patients are worried about cancer not necessarily because of plethora of information but lack of it. Interestingly...

Re: Endometriosis and Uterine Fibroids
