Cervical Cancer Screening Test!

Just this morning, I had my regular Pap Smear plus the VIA (Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid) test. It's one way of screening from cervical cancer.

According to the magazine that I've read (while waiting for my name to be called) this morning, the risk of cervical cancer is greater than what we thought. Just imagine, a woman dies of cervical cancer in every 2 minutes- worldwide. But here in the Philippines, it is the 2nd leading killer cancer for women. This kind of cancer is caused by a common virus known as HPV or the Human Papilloma Virus.

To make it sure that I'm free from HPV, I had it checked this morning:
Dr. Chu putting some acetic acid in my cervix....
(super "hapdi")

here's the result:
I have a healthy cervix!

Thanks God, I'm free from Cervical Cancer and am now ready for my 2nd pregnancy!
