• #SmearForSmear

    Do you know what a smear test is? No, neither did I until I was so ill I needed one but the GPs in my home village wouldn’t give me one. It was 18 months of fighting, being accused of sleeping around and constantly feeling ill until finally a gynaecologist saw me and gave me […]
