My first smear was abornal, luckily the hospital and doctors have kept a close check on it. I was about 25 when I had my first. Who knows how long it had been abornmal for before that?

Having a regular smear test is Very Important. It can save lives!

This is a no brainer really... Whatever the youngest age is, that females are at risk then that would be a starting point to discuss the smear testing. Saving lives should start as soon as possible, but aged 16 would be a starting point...starting NOW!

I've suffered Cervical cancer. Luckily 2 cone biopsies was enough to rid my of the cancer cells. First one was unsuccessful & was done under general anaesthetic, I haemorrhaged & almost died So the next one had to be done under general I had to be cauterized by laser...That was when I was 28yrs old, I just which I'd have had the opportunity of a preventative vaccine Or had early more frequent smears.....If it is legal to be having sex then there should most definitely screening.

My mum has had cervical cancer 2 or 3 times & she is still here 2 tell the tail so 2 speak. If it was not 4 the smear test I even want 2 think about where my mum would be now. Plus young girls r having sex so early these days, b4 they even understand sex.
