Some call it a necessary evil. Some don't think it's a big deal. Some completely avoid it at all costs. Ladies, I am referring to that wonderful time of the year called the PAP SMEAR. Do you have any horror stories surrounding your time with the duck? Do you tend to schedule it around other important times of the year, like your birthday, or a holiday, so it's easier to remember? If you don't get it done.... WHY THE HELL NOT??!?!??? Do you tend to "prepare" yourself for the visit a little more than you would with a guy (or girl, if that's what blows your hair back)? Have you ever had it done in an office that has pictures posted on the ceiling? Do you notice a difference between when a male medical professional does it as opposed to when a female medical professional does it?
