Now looking back I realise that life got in the way and I delayed something that literally takes a couple of minutes and is a minor discomfort if any at all. Had I just gone when as soon as I stopped spotting it may not have been so horrific. Take the smear when it’s due and if something’s changed or doesn’t feel right get it checked out!
Nothing is worth risking your life for “feeling uncomfortable”. A few minutes of discomfort could save the years of your life!”
