911DOC :

There's no way around it if you want to be sure you have no problems with the cervix such as cervical cancer or pre-cancer.

911DOC :

I do these exams myself

911DOC :

and a good physician or practitioner can do this exam so that it is painless

911DOC :

standing by

JACUSTOMER-m1e6znvu- :

its not the pain i just cant stand the thought of someone near that part of me. i know it sound stupid

911DOC :

i'm not sure how I can help you with this. I think your question is if you can avoid the exam. sure you can, but you risk missing a cureable disease. it's your choice of course. how can I help you with this?

JACUSTOMER-m1e6znvu- : Just wondered if there was an alternative
911DOC :

no. none. there is no way to check for cervical cancer without this test. sorry.

911DOC :
