Pretty f*cking scared.
I found out that my sister has “atypical squamous cells” in her cervix. (sidebar: for ONCE my anatomy and physiology was used).
Because it was caught late, my sister has to have surgery that would have part of her cervix removed and if she does not have it removed it will become cancerous. The removal of her cervix would affect her future in several ways, one of which is a harder time when conceiving children. In the past, my sister also had a benign tumor in her breast, which was later removed surgically. She looks back and blames it on birth control.
I’m freaking out.
A couple of weeks before I heard the news, I received a call from a clinic that I go to when I’m out of my hometown. Keep in mind, I went for a regular check up in April and May. I received a call this month (August) about a check up…. 2 or 3 months ago?! Anyways…. they told me that my pap smear was abnormal and that I have atypical squamous cells, the same condition of my sister. The lady on the other line must have heard the silence. She reassured me that because of my age, all I had to do was to get a check yearly and see if it progresses.
I’m scared. I want kids in my future…just not now. Birth control is the answer for now…. Should I risk having children now or risk not having any children in my future….
Michele Bachmann Slams Rick Perry Over HPV Vaccine
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the mother of three daughters — momentarily forget how many children she had — went after Rick Perry during Monday night’s GOP debate for his 2007 executive order mandating that young girls in Texas be vaccinated against HPV, the most common sexually transmitted disease and one that can lead to cervical cancer.
“To have innocent little 12-year-old girls be forced to have a government injection through an executive order is just flat out wrong. That should never be done. That’s a violation of a liberty interest,” she said.
She’s a fucking cunt and doesn’t know what is right for women of the United States, granted forcing 12-year-old girls to be vaccinated isn’t right either.
According to the CDC (http://www.cdc.gov/cancer/cervical/statistics/ , 2007), 12,280 women in the United States were diagnosed with cervical cancer. 4,021 women in the United States died from cervical cancer.
