I have had several smears in the past but have been putting this one off for quite a while ,prob 18 months or so.
I have finally decided /scared myself into going to have it done but now i don't know when to go as my cycle has got shorter since i came off the pill(thought it would help moods etc)
My cycle is starting every 3 weeks more or less.
I was suprised she said that to me. I tried to book an appt but they couldn't do until next fri and my cycle has been rather eratic since it came back in feb (last one was 8 weeks) so no idea if I will be bleeding by then. I decided to wait until next period starts then ring and book.
I went a week ago & was told to come mid-cycle, but think I may have bodged my dates up as I am having lots of pre period symptoms right now!
I'm not very good at keeping track of my cycle now that I'm single!
I have never been very good at keeping track of my cycle (apart from when ttc), and normally have a 5wk cycle so forget about it.
And I am not going for a smear with anyone!
Have to say, had a smear after ds1 and remember thinking "well, after giving birth this doesn't feel at all embarassing anymore".
