I suppose really women need to be encouraged, women that are visiting regularly are in a fairly secure position and if they do get treatment they're going to have minor treatment like the laser therapy which has got it's ups and downs but it's more or less, it's not very bad and therefore it's not very much to be scared of. But if people aren't coming because they're scared then that's going to put them in the position where they may be, if they need treatment they may need more severe treatment. So to actually know that if something has happened, if there is a problem that the cure for that problem is actually not very bad, it's probably not, initially it's almost the incentive to sort of say if you are checked regularly and if there is a problem then probably it would be quite something very simple to sort out and that you're being looked after and you're being monitored and the best is being done for you.
