I had my first Pap test about a week ago and I got a call from the medical centre asking me to come in as the doctor wants to see me.

Today I went in and got my results; a possible high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion. I was in shock I couldn’t stop the tears. I thought to myself “I’m to young”. I was afraid and alone. The doctor also mentioned that I have to have a coloscopy & biopsy. I have made my appointment and yet to have the coloposcopy and biopsy.

My tips for Australian women about cervical health:

No matter how afraid you are be brave and have a Pap test it really can save your life.
