Personally, I can't take the stress of trying to refute all of the mis-information I'm seeing on this topic (again), but I will just chime in to say "yes, I get them" and that you know, you really can't dig a tunnel to china with a little old cytobrush and spatula. It's just a little scrape, scrape, brush. No worse than vigorous sex or what we all do to our teeth and gums every day.
As for the hpv "myth"??? There is more than one hpv virus. Start reading real medical studies. I'm all for intuitive care of self, but come on
. Pap smears are one of the easiest screening tests you can get with the potential to greatly reduce your risk of dying from cervical cancer. Sure, if you get a suspicious result, look into healing and nutrition and chakra issues and relationships (a good place to start is with the writings by Christiane Northrup) - but doing these things won't magically grant you a cancer free cervix.
I will say that I am very thankful to have access to such an easy screening exam. A lot of women can't say the same and die a horrible, most possibly preventable death as a result.
oh, and "love juice"??? ugh, must be too early in the am for me. too funny. having sex the night before, douching, etc, can potentially alter the result of a pap.
