SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF ATTENDING A SMEAR TEST #SmearForSmear

#SmearForSmear 2018 is here go make the appointment for your smear test.

It’s cervical cancer prevention week and a subject that could affect any of us at any time. I know the majority of you who read my blog are ladies so I’m hoping this post will encourage you all to think about the last time you had a smear test. Cervical cancer can effect anyone Daughters, Mums, Aunts, Cousins and friends or any other female we know could potentially be affected by this awful disease. That’s why I’m helping spread the word and encouraging any of you who don’t regularly get checked to go make that appointment.

The number of women attending potentially life-saving smear tests is falling. Help change this. Join the campaign from Monday 22- Sunday 28 January during Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.

Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women under 35, yet one in three young women don’t attend their smear test. By supporting  the JoTrust campaign and sharing our #SmearForSmear encouraging women everywhere to go make that appointment and showing that smear tests save lives. Attend your smear test, #ReduceYourRisk

Yes I totally get that this is not on your top things to do. It’s not the nicest of experience’s and I know there is probably hundred and one other things you’d rather be doing, but to put it bluntly it could save your life.

Yes I know it can a worry, do I wax, shave, trim but in all honestly the nurse has most probably seen far worse than anything you are about show. Nurses I expect are generally unphased by anything they see, I expect to them one is very much like the other. So please don’t let embarrassment stop you.

Yes the cervical smear might not be the most dignified of experience’s but in all honesty it’s over in a matter of minutes and you only have to go every 3 years are so. If it helps make sure everything is healthy down there its most definitely worth it.

In England every Women between the age 25-64 of age registered with a GP is entitled to a smear test. Women aged 25-49 are invited every three years and women aged 50-64 are invited every five years.

So if this is something you’ve been putting off, go pick up the phone and make the appointment today !!

Also everyone loves a selfie right ? So grab your favourite lipstick and #smearforsmear add your pictures to social media and help spread the word too.

    I’ve had to go for the extra tests and have suspicious cells burned off (they caught them very early with me and it wasn’t even that bad getting them removed). It’s scary to think that without that test every 3 years, they could have developed into something life threatening. Imagine if I’d put it off – so definitely go!

      Aww so glad they caught it early and you get checked regular xx

    Just catching up on reading…this is so important, and everything you say is so true! I was always so embarrassed, but they have seen it all. They aren’t bothered at all. And now I’ve had children well, nothing is embarrassing now!!
