hi casstia, you can get it done through your doctor or go to your family planning clinic. i personally go the doctors. dont worry about it, it only takes a few seconds and is just a little uncomfortable at the worst. get on that phone now lady!!!!! xxx

....and, don't worry about having an abnormal smear. I'm sure you will be just fine and if the worst did happen, which it won't, cervical ca is the most easily and successfully treatable of all the cancers. I'm the proof of that.But you will be fine. Like the rest have said it takes seconds. I find the worst bit is the speculum but at worst it's uncomfortable and, if you get a torn faced nurse, cold!!!! But don't you chicken out. You'll wonder what all the fuss was about when it's over X
