Girls Rite of Passage

At least in some cultures. They perform ceremonies that honor and empower women. In our sick culture we send girls to doctors that do nothing, but violate, and humiliate them. Which does nothing other than encourag young women that there are a poorly designed dangerous disease which obviously does not encourage trust, respect, and love.

CDC Says Annual Pap Smears May Do More Harm Than Good

CDC Says Annual Pap Smears May Do More Harm Than Good

Women who get annual pap smears may receive no benefit over women who are tested less frequently and it may in fact be causing harm since frequently tested women may also be at increased risk of unnecessary treatment and anxiety, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are warning.
Researchers analyzed 1991-1998 data from a national study of nearly 130,000 women who had a first Pap test reported as normal, and at least one subsequent Pap test performed within the following 9 to 36 months.
"Many times, especially for low-grade abnormalities, there's a lot of false positives (results which appear positive, but are in fact negative), and women may be biopsied and receive other treatment because of the Pap test result," Dr. Mona Saraiya from the CDC told Reuters Health. "These symptoms might have gone away if we'd left (the women) alone," she added. ""There needs to be more research to show what actual harmful morbidity is associated with an abnormal Pap."
"Women who were screened annually rather than less frequently might have worse health outcomes if low-grade results of undetermined clinical importance lead to further testing and unnecessary patient morbidity and anxiety," the researchers conclude.
Current guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggest that most women should have annual Pap tests. The American Cancer Society guidelines suggest that screening less frequently than every year might be adequate for women who have had three negative annual tests.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Well folks, here you have it, straight from the weekly report of the CDC. The MMWR tells us that the annual pap smear is unnecessary.

If cervical cancer is detected there are other options that can be tried under the care of a competent physician. One involves high doses of oral folic acid (10-20 mg daily) and also vitamin A injected into the cervix. It is likely that higher doses of oral folic acid will also help prevent cervical cancer. Of course, having one sexual partner is also a great idea, since cervical cancer appears to be a partially dependent upon a sexually transmitted virus (Human Papilloma Virus - HPV).

Women take back your bodies!
Pelvic exams are sick sexist ways of reinforcing the idea that womanhood is a disease which does nothing to encourage trust, love, and respect for women’s bodies. This obviously leads young women to have sex too young before their immune systems are ready thus leading to HPV. Women need to be encouraged to educate themselves about their bodies, chart their own rhythms, and cycles for health, and natural birth control, and how to treat common aliments without doctors. If a women truly feels that that a exam is needed every women should have the right to order a do-it-yourself exam kit, and send it to a lab. is one such website that offers it. Also a Cervical Specific Antigen Blood test is 98% more effective than an exam. Why is this not being offered to women? Money perhaps? After 70 million years of Homo sapiens species evolution women are amazedly designed to ovulate, bleed, grow, and birth a child without doctors. When OB/GYN’s came on the scene that’s when things got dangerous. It was poverty that killed women, not because womanhood is dangerous. Women do not deserve to be submitted, violated, mutilated, and drugged, women’s bodies are better than that. Obviously if what happens to men that what happens to women in OB/GYN’s offices and maternity wards it would be illegal. So women of the world take back your bodies.
