Be part of the movement 💪

Australia is on track to be the first country in the world to eliminate cervical cancer by 2035 as long as women get on top of their cervical health.

This week is all about cervical cancer awareness. The new cervical screening programme is open to those aged from 25-74 every 5 years and helps to detect the presence of HPV (Human Papilloma Virus), it is much more accurate than its predecessor the Pap test.

HPV takes over 10 years to develop into cervical cancer and cervical cancer is a rare outcome of HPV infection. For this reason you only need to have a test every 5 years rather than 2.

The test itself, taken in the same way as the Pap test, takes five minutes and could save your life.

If you’re overdue your smear test, please book in today or if you have any abnormal bleeding at any age, such as bleeding between periods, after intercourse or after the menopause please seek medical advice.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Did you know that the traditional PAP smear is changing in Australia?

It’s being replaced with a new Cervical Screening Programme from 1st December 2017.

What is the Cervical Screening Programme?

This is a test that is quick and simple to check the health of your cervix (neck of the womb). It is done by your health care provider.

What is different about the new programme?

The cervical screen is done in the same way as the traditional PAP smear so it will not feel any different to you.

The new test is more effective at detecting the human papilloma virus (HPV) that causes cervical abnormalities, at an earlier stage.

Who needs testing?

If you’re a woman aged between 25-74 years of age and have ever been sexually active the test is open for you every 5 years.

When shall I have a cervical screening test?

Your first test will be due at 25 years of age or two years after your last PAP test. If your result is normal you will be due in five years for your next test.

How common is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer is rare. In Australia every year around 800 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer. However most cervical cancer is preventable with regular screening.

Feel free to drop by my clinic if you have any further questions.

Take care & stay healthy
