At-home sample collection device for men to check if you have been exposed to high-risk strains of human papillomavirus (HPV). Laboratory results are provided within 5 days.
HPV – a viral infection that affects both men and women – is the most common sexually transmitted disease. There are more than 100 different strains of the virus and it is estimated that around 60% of all sexually active individuals in South Africa will contract it at some point in their lives.
Most HPV infections are asymptomatic and can be cleared by the immune system. On the other hand, some high-risk strains of HPV can cause genital warts and are responsible for 99% of cervical cancer cases.
WHO & WHY?
Risk factors for HPV infection include engaging in unprotected sex, becoming sexually active at an early age, having multiple sexual partners, early pregnancy, using hormonal contraception and having a co-infection with HIV or other STIs. Infection is possible in monogamous relationships so the risk is not limited to those who have multiple partners.
This sample kit contains a urine collection device that allows you to collect a sample at home for a molecular laboratory HPV screening test.
The test can detect the following high-risk HPV genotypes: 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 and 68.
Once the self-sampling kit is received, follow all the instructions carefully.
Your HPV health report will come in an easy-to-understand format with a detailed explanation of results, what they mean and your next steps.
