Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a family of over 100 viral strains, some of which cause warts, others are associated with cancer of the genital tract, most frequently, on the cervix. This LetsGetChecked HPV test looks for the following HPV strains 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 and 68. These strains are considered high risk for the development of cervical cancer. If HPV type 16 or 18 are identified in a sample, the test result will read ‘HPV 16 detected’ or ‘HPV 18 detected’. If one of the other high risk strains are present, the test result will read ‘other high risk type detected’ and the specific strain will not be provided in the results.
Human papillomavirus(HPV) is transmitted through sexual contact and causes almost 100 % of cervical cancer in women.It is estimated that 1 in 2 will contract the virus in their lifetime. Like most STDs HPV is symptomless and requires a test to detect the virus.

You should take the test if*:
- You have had skin to skin contact with someone who is carrying the HPV virus
- You have had unprotected sex
- You have not received a HPV vaccine
*It is important to discuss this test with your physician if you are outside the recommended age for HPV screening programs.
This test is not a replacement for regular cervical (pap) smear tests.
