To all the women who are waiting for a colposcopy or results, my appointment letter came through the post today. Enclosed, a little note asking me to phone them if I cannot make it, informing me that last year, in London alone, 10,208 women did not attend their colposcopy.
As worrying as this is, it is reassuring for us, WE are going, WE are doing something about those cells, WE are being smart and sensible.
When we think that "only" around 3,000 women get CC each year and over 10,000 don't even bother getting changes checked out, the odds must be in our favour, no?
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend
