I just wanted to clarify. you aren't refusing pap smears all together. Just the frequent footrest miles and opting ot have it done every now and then instead of every year.

Yes, I think that some people have the perception that low-income women sleep around.
One time when I was 17 I went to get a pap, pills and a chlamydia test, because I found out an ex had it. So they tell me that I have to be tested for all STD's, and I say no, I just want to be tested for the one I might have. So they say that because I refused their tests, they would not provide services to me until I agreed to do them all. No paps, no birth control, and no tests for only one STD. So I'm 17, homeless, and with no income, and I can't get health services because I won't do it their way.
Luckily, my old high school nurse agreed to see me at the school, even though I was no longer a student. (I continued to go there until I was 20!)
