I should go over to the 20's somethings group and let them know this, but I just found out this week that you can't get the vaccine for the HPV virus if you are over 30. AND I also found out that about 99% of the women who have the HPV end up with cervical cancer.
I don't know if that is an accurate statistic, but I'm still worried. My sister is the one who recently gave me this information because she has dyplasia (for the 3rd time!) and has to have a biopsy in June. Oh, and she also tested positive for HPV but there is nothing they can do about it.
She has no philopian tubes and she's has been through an unsuccessful IVF after which her husband divorced her because he wanted kids even though HE was the bastard who gave her the virus that caused her to lose the tubes in the first place. OK, I'm getting angry. But basically she's lived in a reproductive hell in the past 10 years and now the doctors have to go searching for cancer? Are you kidding me?
This is stupid. I shouldn't be sitting up worrying about this stuff. But I am because I haven't been to the doctor since Sophie was born (3 years) and I can't seem to get pregnant again. We've been trying for a year with no luck. I guess it's time to get my
fat butt back into the delightful stirrups. Yuck.
You bet your ass I am not giving up my dream job of staying home with my daughter while she's little==not unless my hubby grows a uterus and starts getting a period. so there!
but this isn't about me right now, it's about my dear sissy. I just can't stand some of this crap that women have to go through. it just seems so unfair sometimes you know?
