I am angry as I have never been asked by a single dr if I was exposed. Then I have to educate and insist on annual Pap smears since my hysterectomy in 91. Who is accountable? The FDA!!!!
Oh the issue is not limited to the US, Bonnie…
And I think doctors share their part of responsibility – to be well informed – too…
Btw, I am not “defending” the FDA…
