Demand Your Pap Smear!

I just learned today that my insurance covers me for an annual Pap Smear. If it wasn’t for Obama Care I wouldn’t have known.

Apparently I was covered last year too. I can’t believe I’m wasting my money on exams I’m not utilizing. I might have serious problems and not even be aware of them… And it would be MY fault!

So I’m getting started right away.

I’m not exactly sure what to do as I’ve never had a Pap Smear, or a ‘peek and poke’ as our neighbor puts it, and I’ve read online that at my age it should have been a regular process for decades now. As usual, I’m Very Late to the game.

So I’ve placed some calls to friends to find out which Gynecologists they like and which they don’t. Then I can find out if the good ones are in my network and have my GP, more likely his Nurse, send a referral.

I’m kind of hoping to find a Male Gyno… I’m not sure I’d be comfortable with a Female. But I guess I’ll take whoever is most recommended.

Oh, and my wife is scheduling her Prostate Exam tomorrow.

She’ll LOVE that.
