  1. 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!!!!

    1. 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…
