I thought they'd be free on the NHS but apparently they're around £100. Nothing comes up when I google 'free pap smear'. Wtf do I do because I'm too poor for that but I don't wanna die of cancer lmfao is that really too much to ask for
I'm pretty sure smear tests are free.
That should be free. One of my granddaughters is 18 too and she had one a couple of months ago. She had some symptoms and the GP sent her for one.
Get a GP appointment and ask for one.
They are definitely free in the UK. I recommend that you google "cervical smear" rather than "pap smear" or just call your GP surgery. :-)
They're not called pap smears in the UK - that's probably why you're not finding anything on a google search. That's a US term. They're called smear tests in the UK
Smear tests are free on the NHS. Women aged 25 and above are called routinely.
If you have symptoms that concern you, you should speak to your GP. They'll be able to organise any tests that you need, free of charge, including if they think you need a smear test.
