Who Should Get Screened?

Women between the ages of 25 to 69 should be screened for cervical cancer every three years. Cervical cancer screening (Pap test) can stop at age 69 if your results have always been normal. Ask your health care provider if you should still be tested.

You should still screen regularly for cervical cancer if:

  • You’ve been through menopause;
  • You’ve had only one sexual partner or have been with the same partner for a while;
  • You’ve had the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine;
  • You’re in a same-sex relationship; or,
  • You’re a transgender individual with a cervix.
To book your next Pap test, contact your health care provider or a medical clinic.

Women age 25-69 should be screened for cervical cancer every 3 years.
