And so it begins, Part 2……….

Another huge letdown for women.   I wonder if  “they”  will push so hard for Gardisil vaccinations now.  There are plenty of women that need paps long before 21.  And a lot of doctors will not prescribe birth control without a pap.

I wonder what is next on the medical agenda??  Will men start foregoing prostate exams??  All in the name of the mighty dollar.

I guess it will cost the government less if people are dropping like flies and there are less people to treat.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The new mammogram recommendations out earlier this week caused quite an uproar. Now comes another change in screening tests for women — this one for cervical cancer.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) releases new guidelines Friday, saying women don’t need their first cervical cancer screening — or Pap test — until they’re 21 years old. And, they don’t need followup examinations as often as previously recommended.

The ACS expects to release its new guidelines in late 2011.
