It’s Cervical Cancer Awareness Month
Cervical cancer used to be the number one cause of cancer-related deaths for women in the U.S. However, the rate has dropped significantly with the increased use of the Pap Smear. The Pap test can detect cervical cancer early, giving women a greater chance at a cure.
Make a women’s health appointment with St. Thomas to make sure you’re not at risk.
Is PrEP Right For You?
PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is medicine that is highly effective at preventing HIV when taken as prescribed. PrEP is safe for women to take, and can even be taken during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. There are also no known interactions between PrEP and hormone-based birth control methods, so it is safe to use both at the same time.
