More accurate. Less often. Talk to your healthcare provider today.

The new Cervical Screening Test is every 5 years and replaces the 2-yearly Pap test.

If you're aged 25 to 74 you should have your first Cervical Screening Test 2 years after your last Pap test.

If at any age you have symptoms you should discuss these with your healthcare provider immediately.
