I've had a few smear tests and they were painful and humiliating.
As I've never been sexually active they were also pointless which I didn't know at the time. Now I refuse to go.
I didn't want to have to discuss my reasons with my GP as it's none of his business but I have had to write to them to tell them why I do not want a smear test because when I just ignored the letters I was removed from my GP's list without being told.
They still keep sending me letters although I have given them my reasons and I feel frankly bullied.
I wish they would treat people as individuals not specimens in a jar and respect our wishes when they are reasonable.
