sis, ganyan din sabi ng ka-ofismate ko dati na masakit daw pero when i had mine naman nung nalaman kong buntis ako parang di lang komportable na may ipapasok inside you...sabi nung ob sakin depende daw kasi yun sa gumagawa..

just got the result nung papsmear ko last month, ok naman...after ko manganak sinabi ni ob na magpapsmear ulit pero sabi niya i-taon daw ng b-day ko para hindi ko makakalimutan gawin ulit yun next year...tama rin naman idea na yun kasi sa sobrang busy nating mga nanay mas madalas nakakalimutan natin yung sarili natin..

kaya goodluck mga momies! ;D

Vinegar Now Being Used to Detect Cervical Cancer

http://www.femalenetwork.com/health-wellness/vinegar-now-being-used-to-detect-cervical-cancer

Every year, more than 200,000 women die from cervical cancer, and 85 percent of these come from developing countries. After all, for women struggling to feed their family, it can be difficult to justify the expense of annual pap smears.

However, a new method developed by the experts at the John Hopkins Medical School has given women all over the world new hope. Ordinary table vinegar (5 percent acetic acid) can now be used to detect precancerous lesions in the cervix.

According to Dr. Ricky Lu, a cervical cancer prevention expert who works with the organization Jhpiego, a global health affiliate of Johns Hopkins University, vinegar makes the lesions obvious even to the naked eye. "Even with people who are medically untrained, it's not difficult to see," he said. 

But how exactly does the vinegar help you detect cervical cancer?

Itís simple, really. All nurses have to do is to brush the vinegar directly onto the cervix. In just a few minutes, the solution turns the lesions white, and they can then be frozen off. According to a report by Donald G. McNeil Jr. in the New York Times, the vinegar test, also known as VIA/cryo (short for visualization of the cervix with acetic acid and treatment with cryotherapy) has the "potential to do for poor countries what the Pap smear did for rich ones: end cervical cancer's reign as the number one cancer killer of women."

In Thailand, Dr. Bandit Chumworathayi, a gynecologist at Khon Kaen University  who was involved in the first run of the vinegar study in the country, believes the method to be very effective. In his interview with McNeil, he explained that "vinegar highlights the tumors because they have more DNA, and thus more protein and less water, than other tissue." Apparently, as a treatment, freezing is about 90 percent effective, and there are next to no side effects. In fact, 29 out of 75 provinces in the country have already adopted the vinegar test.

While the pre-tumors are detected more accurately with vinegar than with a regular pap smear, the method isnít foolproof just yet. False positives are not uncommon. There are spots that turn white but turn out to be benign. Still, the discovery of the use of vinegar has revolutionized healthcare for women.

At the moment, the screening test is already being used in pilot projects located in more than 20 countries worldwide.

hello, raella.. PAP SMEAR or cervical screening is a test for samples of cells taken from your cervix or vag**a. Kukunin yung smear na galing sa cervix mo..the purpose of this is to check if you have a healthy cervix or detect if meron ka bang precancerous conditions that may lead to cervical cancer. This is not painful as of my experience, but I could say that it's a bit uncomfortable..a week after the test mo makukuha ang result. Ang sabi ng OB ko, women who are sexually active should have Pap smear which should be done every year. And for you na may anak na and siguro naman may activities kayo ni hubby mo, for sure, kelangan mo nun. alam mo naman, dito sa pinas, cervical cancer is the second on the list that causes death among women. I am not frightening you, but as what we always hear from the doctors, prevention is better than cure.

 The last time I have a smear test was December 2013, I cant remember how much has it cost me since I have my HMO..pero siguro around 1,500 or something yun..or depende din sa OB mo kung magkano ang sisingilin niya sayo. Try to inquire sa Rural Health Unit nyo, baka pwede ka dun mag-avail ng libreng pap smear. :)

Only your OB can answer right? Don't be afraid po. It's better to ask the doctor than to get info on the internet which might not even apply to you. Your doctor should know how to go easy on you should there be a problem. Good luck po.
