Become your own health advocate: Ask your OB/GYN for these 4 tests
Erica Avey

I am a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner in the US.

I agree 100% with you that we should be acting as our own health advocates. You are the expert on you.

I am wondering though- why are you recommending that women get pap smears done every 1–2 years? This is not the guidance from many reputable organizations such as ASCCP, ACOG, and USPSTF.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
