When I was in college I missed one and they gave me 6 months for the time being. Maybe they'll go for that. We have to get annual papsmears.

I already have been diagnosed for about 4 years now. There's no question I have PCOS, just am not being treated at the moment. I've already had two pelvic ultrasounds. Last one was pointless as it was like 'yep you are right. You have Pcos like we said years ago'.

I have always had to have a pap first. Remembering arguing with a dr about it at 16!

My dr is going to start me on the metfromin after the baby. She thinks the only reason I got pregnant was because i had been doing the on and off bc to keep my cycle steady.

They've changed paps to every three years here. Thank goodness.

What is the point of the smear before they will prescribe..........?

In a lot of places in North America, they essentially just do it to force testing for cervical cancer and STIs before giving you the pill.

It's silly. I have no issues getting a preventative routine pap/gyno exam every few years, but to have to get one to get contraception is stupid IMO.

Yeah, once I had missed a pap clinic so they gave me one "refill" worth (3 months) to give me time to book a pap.

I am in dire need of a nap and a snuggle with my animals.

I always forget that September is when I bought my car, so my insurance and registration and stuff is always due in September on top of all my regular bills.

My bank account is a tiny bit scary right now.

There is a job I want to apply for and I was feeling kind of sad and guilty thinking of applying for it, because I really like my co-workers and I don't want to leave them in the lurch or anything. My bank account now has me like APPLY FOR THE JOB DO IT DO IT NOW.
