I asked at my GP surgery about having a smear test done as I'm now 66 and no longer called, the nurse said I could if I wanted but as I have attended every test I've ever been called for and never had an abnormal result she said I really have nothing to worry about so I've not bothered to book one.
I do know a lot of women who don't go for testing though, including one of my daughters, she just had her first one recently and she's in her 40's so my guess is there are lots of women who need a swift kick up the backside to go and get tested.

Getting older - accommodation options? - would love advice
