#smearforsmear 💋 « This year, the cervical cancer prevention week is from January 22 to the 30th 💁🏻♀️. For this, they came up with the ‘smear for smear’ campaign which encourages women to share a smeared lipstick selfie to raise awareness around cervical cancer 📢. Smear tests (also called Pap tests) can prevent cervical cancer 👩🏼⚕️. Ever since I turned 20, I’ve been going for screening every couple years 👌🏻. Twice they found problem cells and I had to go through a procedure to remove them 😕. Women don’t go for Pap testing because they are afraid it hurst - it doesn’t‼️ Be more afraid of what may happen if you never get the tests 🦀... So, GO GET SMEAR TESTED🌹! And tell your loved ones to go. »
