The Pap (Papanicolaou) test is a screening test of the cells of the cervix (opening of the uterus). The results can detect changes in the cells ranging from infection and inflammation to precancerous changes. Most of these changes are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
Once biologically female individuals become sexually active, it's advised to discuss your sexual health with a doctor.
The Health & Wellness Centre offers HPV vaccinations. Please call to book an appointment.
