The place I work for the pas 12 years has made some health initiatives to the staff. We have been receiving emails on compulsory health screenings for those over 40 years old. Apart from that they also conduct PAP SMEAR screening to any interested female staff. So here's some input for those ladies out there .. don't forget to do your annual health checkup and pap smear! The Health Centre emailed a summary information about PAP Smear screening and I am sharing it with all on the net :-).
- Have had an abnormal Pap smear
- Might be pregnant
- Having intercourse
- Taking a bath
- Using tampons
Menstrual fluid and blood may make it difficult for the pathologist to interpret results. Newer, liquid based Pap smears can separate cervical cells from mucus and blood, allowing a more accurate reading. Empty your bladder just before the test.
