The video found below is filled with so much information about cervical health, UTI, HPV, vaginal discharge you name it. Dr Shahzadi Harper talks with me during one of our Coffee & a Chat videos.
A few months ago, on the 15th to the 21st of June 2020 was Cervical Screening Awareness week. We had some discussions about what happens when you get your cervical screening and why it’s so important.
But we don’t want to stop the conversation there. Most women could not get their smear test done this year due to the pandemic, but today we’re going to discuss the importance of getting the smear test done in more detail. Dr Harper lets us know what happens during a smear test and how to make yourself feel more comfortable for it.
We also talk about HPV. HPV, or Human Papillomavirus is a common group of viruses. There are more than a 100 types of HPV. Dr Shahzadi Harper speaks about how our body deals with them and what different vaccines are available to fight this virus.
During this video we also deal with UTI’s. Urinary Tract Infections are very common in women. They can be super uncomfortable and even painful, and it seems to affect women so much more than men (so unfair right!). But we can help our bodies prevent getting a urinary tract infection. We discuss how in the video.
