Pap Smear in Singapore: The Ultimate Guide To Detect Cervical Cancer (2019)
Pap Smear in Singapore: The Ultimate Guide To Detect Cervical Cancer (2019)

All females need to know what a Pap smear is. It is a simple and yet important procedure that could literally be lifesaving.

Cervical cancer is the 4th most common cancer in women around the world [1]. In Singapore, it is expected that 429 women are diagnosed and 208 women die from the disease each year. This is unfortunate, as cervical cancers are preventable and curable when detected early [2].

The Pap test has been widely recognized as an effective way to detect early cervical cancer. It is affordable and easily accessible in most countries. They are crucial in detecting and thus preventing early-stage cervical cancers from developing into an invasive stage [1].

I wrote this article to help you understand the importance of cervical cancer screening with Pap smear. Read on to find out more on the procedure, function, and costs of a Pap test in Singapore!

The Complete Guide To Birth Control In Singapore (2019)

Birth control is a topic that's still not commonly discussed in Singapore.

However, with the increase in sexual awareness and activity amongst the younger generation in Singapore, it's important to raise the awareness of reliable birth control methods.

Going through a situation when an unwanted pregnancy happens can be really stressful and emotional. You must know that this situation can easily be avoided!

Therefore, I have decided to write this article to help both men and women gain a better understanding of birth control and how to use them correctly.
