More accurate. Less often.
Cervical screening has changed in Australia. The Pap test has been replaced with a new Cervical Screening Test every five years.
Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. The new Cervical Screening Test is expected to protect up to 30% more women.
The test is a simple procedure to check the health of your cervix. It feels the same as the Pap test, but tests for the human papillomavirus (known as HPV).
Your first Cervical Screening Test is due two years after your last Pap test. After that, you will only need to have the test every five years if your results are normal.
Regular cervical screening is your best protection against cervical cancer.
