I am horrible when it comes to spending money on my own medical stuff that is just preventitive maint so to speak -- I have not had a pap since my last child was born in 2001 --- finally today i am going -- and I would love any excuse to blow it off -- but I have to go no more being lazy or cheap about my health - getting too damn old to be stupid!!!  Next i have to make an appointment for the Mam ---- OMG the crap we women have to deal with --- but I guess men get their dose with the prostate crap right?  LOL 


Are you good about seeing your doctor for regular check ups and stuff?

My doc insists on a pap and a breast exam every year before he will prescribe my bc for that year.

yeah i have never taken BC -- strokes run in my family so not advised -- today I am praying I can put the wheels in motion for my partial hysterectomy - i have Kaiser so who knows what I have to do to get that approved.  But I hope my list of issues is enough medical reasons for them to say okay

i really have no choice in the matter, our family Dr. will tell my husband, daughters, and my folks to get my butt in for this or that, we all go to the same Dr. and all have access to each others medical info which is nice in one way but a PITA in another lol.

I used to get a pap once a year but they have changed things here and now a woman only needs one every 2 years.

maybe thats what i need - someone up my butt about being neglectful --- but this is the year to get all that done -- i have this appt today then will schedule the mam and also have to see my primary about some other digestive issues and a skin tag that has radically changed color.... such fun getting old!  LOL

No. I'm horrible at it. In fact, I put off ever going back to the dr for myself after my son was born. I finally forced myself 5 months after his first bday and guess what?

I was 3 months pregnant and didnt know it. Talk about shock. Lol. :O
