Does anyone know of a good gynecologist in Taipei?
Preferably a female obgyn who has a private clinic and takes the national health insurance.
BTW, when’s the last time YOU had a PAP smear?
It’s something we foreigners tend to put off living in Taipei, or at least make excuses for neglecting…like “we hate them!”
I was with 5 females tonight (ages between 25-40+) who haven’t had ‘the smear’ ranging from 2 years to never!
This is not good.
Taiwanese women also tend to put them off, and I get the impression it’s not a high priority to inform women of the importance of having them in Taiwan. IE>infrequency of public service announcements on TV, etc.
But I have known two Taiwanese ladies to have been diagnosed with uterine cancer at very young ages.
Thanks for any info or ideas on this matter.
PS> Guys, if you care, you may want to ask your girlfriends if they get PAP smears. You might be surprised with their answers.
