It’s the time of the year again…the time I dread but I still have to go through it, yes my yearly check up at my OB&G. I can’t remember if I collected my report from my check up last year but I know the test was normal la..
I remember too that my Gynae reminded me to have my Hepatitis B shot last year as my blood test shows that I didn’t have the immunity during a blood test while I was pregnant with Kylie. See la, Amah so lau hei (dilly dally) till now, Kylie also past 2 years old leow! So this time I knew the Gynae will say something about this. She said if I don’t get it done, by the time I turn 40 nobody will give me the shot…she said this last year, “What are you waiting for? Want to wait till u become a patient??” Garang (fierce) leh my Gynae..
Anyway, the pap smear test swab was a quick one but the scan took a longer time as she couldn’t locate my other ovary and can you imagine how uncomfortable it got? (NO guys you will NEVER understand how it feels! LUCKY U!)
So after that visit I told myself, I MUST get the Hep B shot and I did yesterday. In fact I wanted to get the flu vaccine shot too as my cousins warned me that she also caught the flu in Sydney. But the doctor said that it takes at least 1 week for the flu vaccine to take effect and since I’m travelling in a few days time, it’s pointless that I get the flu shot. According to the doctor, the flu vaccine is created based on information from the WHO, meaning, the vaccine can be different every year depending on the nature/strain of the flu virus. But the vaccine should last for 1 – 2 years. So I just took the Hep B shot….OUCH!
So have you
