I dont think some medical professionals understand the anxiety and trauma that some women undergo when having a cervical smear test. I myself was abused as a teenager and having to lie back and bare all for someone that you hardly know is a terrifying ordeal. Afterwards reverting back to disturbed behaviour and having flasbacks. The whole issue surrounding smear tests push me into a long period of depression and obsessive behavour I have just been called to have my routine smear and the anxiety levels that I have at this moment are giving me panick attacks
