Women between the ages of 25 to 69 should have a cervical cancer screening (Pap test) every three years. To book a Pap test, contact your health care provider or a medical clinic.
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.
Screening can stop at age 69 if your results have always been normal. Ask your doctor or health care provider if you should still be tested.
