First smear? Were you not sent for one after you had E?
11/10/2013 at 16:57
Nope. Just had a letter through because I'm nearly 25.

My doctors made me go for one after my 6 week check, I was 18.
Well done for making the app though, so many people put it off.

I have been "looking forward" to it to make sure everything's ok.
Maybe it's different in different places?
It's the coil coming out and the maybe baby #2 that's making me get butterflies!

You know they don't call you until you are 25, personally I think that's wrong. Girls are sexually active much younger. I just signed a oetition which is calling for it to be done when you first go for contraception at the very least. It will save woman from dying
Sorry Dolly, high jacked your thread!! Well done for making the appointment, will be over in a flash

Well done for making the appointment. I didn't even feel my last few smears, childbirth must have stretched everything so you will be FINE.
On a side line, has the age for being called changed? I know I am as old as the hills but I am sure I got called from around 20 for smears.

I think it's 20 in Wales and 25 ever where else.
I'm not worried about the smear really. It's having my coil removed and the realisation baby 2 is a possibility!

In scotland it's 20. My sisters friends was picked up via smear before she was 25 and given a hysterectomy, all thanks to a smear picking up changes.
hope it goes well x

HN - I had my first smear well before 25 as well. They ahve changed it to 25 in England but everywhere that is sensible has it earlier.
With the new vaccination I wonder fi they will move the age back even later?
But surprised you didn't get one after birth Dolly? But good for you for getting it sorted. I had a panic ona thread recently that I hadn't had one recently and phoned the surgery to enquire and they said mine was due soon but they had never had someone ring to check before - they normally have to chase people!
