Posting on the forum- Please read

Hi all,

Unfortunately the forum is still being affected by pesky spammers. In order to block the spam messages being posted we are having to manually publish new posts. This means that new posts won't appear on the forum immediately. We will be checking the forum regularly over the weekend to make sure they are published on the forum as soon as possible, but do bear with us. Please note that this is only the case for brand new posts, if you are commenting on an existing thread then your message will appear straight away.

I am so sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please be reassured that this is just a short term solution and we are working hard to find a long term solution to this spam problem.

Any questions please don't hesitate to get in contact

Best wishes


Have been treated for cervical abnormalities over 20 years ago. Now recently abnormalities have returned. Times have changed and as they are mild was tested for hpv. As I have tested negative for virus have been told can go back to normal testing which is 5 years as I'm over 50! Feel quite vulnerable as this seems a long time to wait and find out if abnormalities have gone, stayed the same or got worse. Wondering what you lovely people think of this wait? Thinking perhaps I will have to pay privately to have a smear done in a years time. Nurse and doctor told me they should return to normal but watch for signs like bleeding or swollen leg. Concerned for women who can't afford to go privately as not all cervical cancer is caused by hpv. If I start a petition to highlight this problem would you sign? Think this is a serious issue which should be addressed all petitions over 100,000 has to be discussed in parliament.
