We're supporting Cervical Cancer Prevention

Did you know, one in three women and people with a cervix don't attend cervical screening?  We want to change that.  It's a test which saves lives, but it's not always easy.

During Cervical Cancer Prevention Week we want to share where you can find tips and support.  Did you know thee are lots of ways to make the test more comfortable?

You can .......

  • Ask to book a longer or double appointment
  • Ask for a smaller speculum
  • Put the speculum in yourself

There are lots more tips you can read on the Jo's website

However, cervical cancer prevention doesn't stop at screening 220,000 women and people with a cervix every year are told the have cervical cell changes after their screening, and many more are given a HPV diagnosis.  Most people don't anything about this before it happens to them, and it can make for a very hard time.

We want everyone to have the information and support they need.  Why not join in the campaign and share your experience, tips and facts, to help others know they aren't alone if they get an unexpected result.
