i just read yesterday about the changes to pap smears and mammograms and posted my thoughts about that in the women's forum yesterday. to me it is a step backwards for women's health, JMO. i'd always been told that the good thing about the yearly exams is that if something is missed one year, a chance to catch it the next. and not all of us have had the vaccine. already things like bone scans to catch osteoporosis are way to late; i had to fight for mine to be done in my late 30s and when it was i had pretty significant osteopenia, had to talk to 3 doctors before one realized i needed one due to my own personal medical history. sounds like instead of being more proactive regarding preventative medicine, these new guidelines for pap smears and mammograms is a step in the wrong direction. i understand the logic behind it, just don't agree with it.
