Book Your Pap / Smear Test -Don't Delay!

I had CIN 2 & 3 Cells, I Was Worried That It Would Progress to Cervical Cancer

“When my son was around 1, I had a routine smear. I wasn’t concerned, I didn’t have any symptoms or anything. There was no reason for me to be concerned about the results. This was my 3rd smear and the other two were fine. 10 days after the smear, I got a letter to say that there were some abnormalities found. A few days later, I went for the punch biopsy. The results of this determined that I had CIN 2 & 3. So within two weeks, I had this all removed.I found the process very scary, but I guess you have to face these things head-on”
