In the Blog

Almost one year ago to the day I wrote a blog posting titled “I love my cervix,” about my own personal experience with a bad pap and the resulting biopsy. After finding myself HPV and cancer free I decided to breath a sigh of relief and write about it, right before Shameless released an issue that covered the new HPV vaccine. Since that day in November, we’ve chatted a lot about HPV, the vaccine and our lovely, lovable cervixes.

Well, it’s that time again and I’m back to the doctor this week to see how my wayward cells are progressing (or rather, hopefully not progressing.) I’ve come a long way from the neurotic, frightened mess I was back then, but honestly the cervical drama can be a tad exhausting and sometimes I just need to laugh at the whole experience.

Thankfully, there’s Teeth. I’m not entirely sure what to think of this, nor have I seen it to judge, but at least the trailer made me feel oddly lighthearted(?) about my ordeal.

Not sure how this one will turn out from a feminist perspective, but here’s to hoping.
