    Do you ladies get anxious waiting for results of your smear test?

    Can't say I have to be honest but I am sure some women do.

    Re: Smear test - anxiousness

    I havenít had a problem, I did wonder if I would but because I was only having it done as a matter of routine with no symptoms of anything going on I wasnít concerned.

    It was only two weeks wait for me, is it about that for you?

    Positive vibes,

    Let us know when it comes through, I would imagine itís normal- most results from them are! Especially if you had a normal result last time.

    Try to keep your mind on other things, maybe read a book or catch up on some tv in your down time, worrying about it wonít change a thing and the likelihood is that thereís nothing to worry about, even a good portion of abnormal results are easily dealt with too!
