Paps Fear, Page 1

I got my pap smear before I’d had intercourse. I was 19, and my physician said it was good to have a look. Opinions vary widely as to whether or not virgins need pap smears. Talk to your doctor!

    I tried to have my first Pap smear when I was twenty and a virgin. They couldn’t do it because “I was to tight”. Now I’m just waiting till I have sex.

    In the UK, you currently can’t get a pap smear on the NHS until you turn twenty-five, then you’re supposed to have them regularly to be on the safe side, I believe. Fun trivia from merry old England! :)

    I started having pap smears when I was very young. Cancer is a big issue with my family (everyone on my mom’s side of the family has had it at LEAST once except for myself–and my mom’s tumors were all benign…lucky!). I guess it just depends on a number of factors whether they’ll do it or not. And, of course, the main issue with any doctor: Whether you have the MONEY to pay for it. *eyeroll*
