March 12, 2012 - Regular pap smears can increase the odds of surviving cervical cancer. Researchers studied every woman diagnosed with cervical cancer in Sweden from 1999 until 2001. They discovered women whose cancer was found during a pap smear had a 92 percent survival rate after diagnosis. The survival rate drops to 66 percent for women who were diagnosed in other ways.

Also, a new study in the journal of sexual medicine finds 90 percent of women seeking treatment for headaches were likely to suffer from a lower sex drive. They are also more likely to report pain associated with sex. Scientists found that the lower sex drive caused the women stress and anxiety. More studies are needed to determine exactly why headaches affect sexual performance.
