Keeping healthy 'down below' (2019)

Books Beyond Words

Having a smear test can be worrying. For women with learning disabilities there is the added fear of not understanding what is happening. This book will help to prepare and support women like Carol who are invited to have a smear test. It begins with a nurse telling Carol and her friends how to stay healthy ‘down below’. It goes on to explain what happens to Carol, from receiving the invitation for a smear test, making the preliminary visit to the GP practice and deciding whether she will have the smear or not, to having the smear and receiving the results. We then see her being recalled for a further test. (Publisher)
