I Missed My Gynecologist Exam Because...

promise to meMany women use every excuse in the book to avoid or delay their regular OB/GYN visits. (Even I, ahem, have been known to do this.) That's exactly why, in honor of January's National Cervical Health Awareness Month, Promise to Me launched to remind and encourage women to schedule their annual gynecological exams.

Just visit the site to schedule an annual exam reminder—it takes less than 30 seconds. And there's an added bonus for signing up...


For each "promise" that is made and each friend the message is passed to, Hologic, a leader in women's health care, will donate $1 to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition to fund cervical cancer screenings for uninsured women.

Have you ever avoided or delayed your annual exam? What was your excuse?
