from the book:
Lesbian women may be at higher risk for uterine, breast, cervical, endometrial, and ovarian cancers (not only) because they are less likely to bear children; (but also because they) have higher rates of alcohol use, obesity, and poor nutrition; and are less likely to visit a health-care provider for routine screenings, such as a Pap test. And … some lesbian women are at risk for many of the same STIs as heterosexual women.
What are you going to do to protect yourself? Why should we suffer later in life for our carelessness today?
