Hey sister! When was the last time you had a pap smear? Do you even know what it is?
A pap smear is a procedure to screen for cervical cancer in women. It is recommended beginning age 21 and every 3 years till age 65. Another alternative is women 30 years and older can have it along with with with HPV test every five years. Not sure about recommendations in Kenya. Times have changed when the recommendation was every year. It’s really not painful but rather uncomfortable pressure-like sensation.
What is the cervix? Guys with a long mjulus can answer this better. When they hit the cervix during sex, the lady will likely flinch or jerk because it can really be uncomfortable. Unfortunately, they read the signal to mean something positive halafu wanajikaza.?. I’m sure we all have experienced this during that pleasurable moment but we don’t want to spoil the moment lol.
Guys, it’s that thing you hit which feels like the head of a penis. If you hit it once, avoid it next time you thrust. Just angle your tool slightly to the side. You partner will thank you later.
So the cervix is the lower, narrow end of the uterus that is at the end of the vagina. The screening involves scraping it to make sure there are no changes to the cells of the cervix. It specifically to tests for precancerous or cancerous cells on your cervix.
The pap smear can sometimes be abnormal but not because you have cervical cancer. The most common reason for the abnormal test is the cervical or vaginal infection that causes changes in the cervical cells.
The best time to do it is two weeks after your periods. It should never be done during your periods because blood interferes with the results.
