What is HPV?

The human papilloma virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus which is known to have more than a 100 strands, majority of which are not serious. HPV can cause a number of conditions, although most people infected with this virus will not develop any symptoms. But some strains of HPV can be dangerous such as the one increasing the risk of cervical cancer.

What is the link between HPV and Cervical Cancer?

Statistics show that 99% of all women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer carry a high risk strain of HPV. Being infected with one of the high risk strains of HPV is thought to be the biggest contributing factor for cervical cancer. Most sexually active women are infected with a strand of the HPV virus at some point in their lives and it can clear within months without any treatment. HPV does not usually have any symptoms or other complications. Although if the virus does not clear, it increases your risk of cancer, due to this reason you have to get regular smear tests.

Who can catch HPV?

HPV is transmitted during sexual intercourse. If you have engaged in unprotected sex, you may possibly carry a type of the virus.

HPV test results

What if I test positive?

If your test results come back as positive, it means you are currently infected with a high risk strain of the virus. You have to arrange to see your regular doctor who will do further checks for cervical abnormalities and arrange regular smear tests for you thereafter. You can do another test a few months after the first one to confirm if the virus has cleared.

What if I test negative?

If your test results come back as negative, it means you are not infected with a high risk strain of the virus. Although you should know the test will not pick up strains of the virus which cause genital warts. The best solution is to practice safe sex.

How quick can I get my results?

This test can take up to 5 working days from the point the sample is received at the lab.
