WHAT?

Buy a self-sampling HPV Test.  This test checks if you have been exposed to cancer-causing strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV).  Results are provided within 3 days of the sample reaching the laboratory.

WHY?

HPV is the most common sexually transmitted disease and affects both men and women.

High-risk strains of HPV can cause genital warts and are responsible for 99% of cervical cancer cases.

When detected early by using a self-sampling HPV test, cervical cancer caused by HPV is completely preventable.

WHO & WHY?

All women should start HPV screening by ordering an HPV self-sampling test at 25, with repeat screenings every 5 years (or 3 years if they are HIV-positive).

Risk factors for HPV infection:

  • unprotected sex
  • becoming sexually active at an early age
  • having multiple sexual partners
  • early pregnancy
  • hormonal contraception
  • HIV or other STI infections

HOW?

This sample kit contains an Evalyn® Brush*  which is for HPV self-sampling. Using the Evalyn® Brush* you collect a sample from the surface of your cervix, without the help of a nurse or doctor.  It is like using a tampon. The device keeps the sample intact during its transportation to the lab.

The test we use is the best because it can detect the most common cancer-causing strains (16 & 18) as well as other strains: 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, and 68.

We will provide you with easy-to-understand results and explain the next steps.

*Used in the Dutch and Danish national cervical cancer screening programs.
