I turned 25 in December and, due to a combination of fear and logisitical issues, only got round to booking my smear a few weeks ago. It was supposed to be tomorrow but due to COVID-19 overwhelming GP surgeries, all 'routine' tests are cancelled for the foreseeable.
In anticipation of the test I was reading up about how important it is and now, knowing how esssential it is in cancer-prevention, I am completely paralysed with anxiety at the idea that I can't be tested. I was in the first cohort of HPV vaccines in 2008 so hopefully am lower risk, but I just can't shake the horrible feeling that I have abnormal cells which aren't being treated.
I suppose I was hoping for some reassurance that, whilst smear tests are really important, a few weeks/months/however long this pandemic lasts won't hopefully make a huge difference? I just feel like this will be on my mind until I am allowed to have the test
