I'm 24 years old, and I had my first pap smear test done just last week. I put it off for so long, because I was scared, and I honestly didn't take it seriously. But after one of my friends had it done (she was 21 years old), she was told they had found pre-cancerous cells. She had to a type of very invasive surgery, wide awake. This shocked me and made me question my health seriously, so I went and had mine done 2 weeks later. Luckily I was found to have very normal cells and I am healthy. I was prepared for worse news - my friend's story really made me feel like I could've had it too.
I hope after reading this, if you haven't already, go have your Pap smear. Book it in. Most GP's do it, and don't be afraid. If you get a male doctor performing it and you feel uncomfortable, you can request a female doctor or at least for another female to be present in the room. 5 seconds of uncomfortableness is worth it. You gotta take care of yourself gals.
After I found out I am healthy, for at least now, I went to spend some time with my family and afterwards my friends. We watched the movie: The Hangover 2. I recommend it, because its funny to see your boyfriends act all "macho" afterwards, and act like their next bachelor party will end the same way. Ha, Ha
