Smear test reminder, ladies! CERVICAL CANCER PREVENTION WEEK 22-29 JANUARY 2018.

Ugh, I know. It's not my favourite part of being a woman, either. But of all the things to prioritise, of all the times that it's important to practise a bit of self-care, getting your smear tests (cervical screening) done regularly has got to be near the top of the list.

My recent test went like this: I took off my pants behind the drawn curtain, bemused as always at the way that the nurse gives us that little bit of privacy when in thirty seconds' time she is going to be having a good old gander at my floodlit fandango.

Then I assumed the position: feet together, knees apart, and awkwardly waited for her to reappear whilst feeling ever-so-slightly thankful that I'd given my lady garden a cursory hack last night. We proceeded to have a lovely chat about our kids and how her little boy is starting school in September and how it's difficult juggling everything as a working mum - whilst she popped in the (larger-sized since I had children) speculum and had a ferret around inside my vajayjay with the funny little toothbrushy thing.

It was over in a trice (what exactly is a trice?) and I went about my day none the worse for wear, just a little squelch of NHS lube to remind me that today I did a GOOD THING. Go me! I'm taking care of myself! You should too, ladies - when was your last smear test? If it's been three years or more, make time to give your GP surgery a ring. You won't regret doing it, but you might regret not.

Spending too much time sat down builds FAT around your organs

People who spent the most amount of time sitting down had the most visceral fat around their organs, found the University of Leicester study.
