SERIES 2, EPISODE 9
Happy Birthday! It's time to 'Get Papped' - with Founder of 'Get Papped', Katie Norbury.

July 10, 2020

If you have a vagina and are over 25yrs, you may have experienced a pap smear (now known as a cervical screening in Australia). If you're not yet 25, haven't had a pap smear yet or have been avoiding them, this ep is here as your (our!) friendly reminder that we all need to be getting checked! It's often said that the best ideas come from personal pain points and Katie Norbury's 'Get Papped' initiative is a perfect example of that, after her experience with an abnormal pap smear. In this ep, we talk about:

Cervical screenings (pap smears) - why they're important, what they involve and what they test forSymptoms to look out for when something's NQR with your intimate healthWhen to get a cervical screening test and how oftenHow Katie used her personal experience with an abnormal pap smear to help open up an often uncomfortable conversation and encourage other people to get checked, tooPeriod poverty and how we can all use simple everyday choices to better support Aussie people with periods (Katie is also the head of Marketing and Communications for the 'Share the Dignity' charity).

A li’l reminder that this ep was recorded in iso via Zoom - the sound isn't studio quality (although it gets pretty good after the first few mins) but please bear with us!
