Love yourself to the fullest. When I became a mom, it was hard to put my needs before my daughter. I learned the hard way that in order to be there for my daughter the way I wanted to, I had to take care of my overall well-being first. With that said, I am grateful to have access to the combined cervical cancer screening through the Pap and HPV co-test because it is an essential part of a woman’s health care routine. How crucial is this screening? Well, before the invention of the Pap test, cervical cancer was the #1 killer of women, but has since dropped to #15🤯 So far the Pap+HPV co-test has been able to detect 94.1% 94.1% of cervical cancers and 99.7% of cervical pre-cancers. One procedure covering both tests give the most comprehensive cervical protection.
