It is late in September to be starting this....but better late than never.

My Gr Grandmother died at 47 of ovarian cancer
My Mother died at 69 of ovarian caner

I have had both ovaries removed at age 44....which VeraMae's oncologist said was NOT an absolute preventive for getting the cancer! But I did it anyway.

    Just had my exam. Last one in 2008. I will be more diligent! They said this would be my last pap smear. I was amazed. Apparently a Pap smear is only for cervical cancer and the doctor said cervicle cancer is only caused by that one certain virus. A Pap smear does not test for ovarian or uterine cancer. I did not know that! Chris

    Thank you for sharing. A good friend at our church lost her battle with ovarian cancer several years ago. She had five daughters. Two of them opted for complete hysterectomies (they were adults with children) as a preventative measure. This fall, it had been SIX YEARS since my last gyn exam. It was with great relief that I came back with no sign of cancer. I thank God for that blessing. I had been keeping up with my mammograms but not the yearly exam. I will never go that long again without a checkups.
