Frequently Asked Questions

The test is performed using a cervical swab sample, which is then evaluated in a laboratory.

A positive result indicates the presence of high-risk HPV DNA in the cervical cells. This doesn't necessarily mean you have or will develop cervical cancer, but it implies an increased risk, necessitating further evaluation and monitoring.

A negative result means that high-risk HPV DNA was not detected in the sample, suggesting a lower risk of developing cervical cancer.

Results are typically available within 1-2 weeks.

There are no specific instructions regarding food or drink consumption before the test.

Yes, the HPV vaccine does not protect against all types of HPV, so it's possible to contract the virus even after vaccination.

The results can guide treatment decisions and help in determining the need for further monitoring or treatment, such as a colposcopy or biopsy.

The test involves minimal risks associated with taking a cervical swab.

The frequency of testing depends on your age, sexual activity, HPV vaccination status, and other risk factors. Your healthcare provider can give you personalized recommendations.

While there is no approved HPV test for men, HPV can cause health problems in men, too.

There is no cure for the HPV virus itself, but the health problems it causes can often be treated.

Yes, HPV can be prevented through vaccination, regular screenings, and safe sex practices.

High-risk HPV types are those that are more likely to cause cancer. The 13 types detected by this test are all considered high-risk.

While it is primarily used for women, men can also contract HPV. However, there is currently no approved test for HPV in men.

If your test results are positive, your healthcare provider will discuss further testing or treatment options with you.

No, a negative test result means you're clear of the 13 high-risk types of HPV the test detects. Other types not detected by the test could still be present.

Yes, it's possible to get re-infected with the same or different HPV types.

Yes, even if you've had the HPV vaccine, regular HPV screenings are still recommended as the vaccine doesn't protect against all types of HPV that can cause cancer.

The test is typically recommended for women aged 30 and above, as HPV is quite common in younger women and often clears on its own without causing health problems.

While the primary use of this test is to detect high-risk HPV types that can lead to cervical cancer, HPV is also linked with other types of cancer such as anal, penile, and some types of oral and throat cancers.

Yes, many people with HPV don't develop symptoms or health problems. Regular screenings can help detect HPV and the health problems it can cause.

Yes, this test can be performed during pregnancy. Having HPV doesn't typically affect pregnancy or the baby's health.

Yes, the test can detect high-risk HPV types in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. However, vaccinated individuals are less likely to be infected with the types of HPV the vaccine protects against.

Most HPV infections are sexually transmitted, but you can also get the virus through close skin-to-skin contact.

No, a positive test result doesn't mean you will develop cancer. It means you have a type of HPV that's associated with a higher risk of certain cancers. Regular monitoring and follow-up tests are important.
