Everything was easy to understand and instructions were easy to follow. I had the results back in my hands within four days - thankfully all clear. Many thanks to all involved.

I found the experience so much more positive than a smear test which I find embarrassing and painful. I will definitely be continuing with my screening with you as it is quick, painless, with results arriving swiftly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I have a HPVCheck?

HPVCheck is a comfortable and reliable at-home cervical cancer screening test that detects the Human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes cervical cancer. 

HPV testing is now approved by the NHS as a reliable method of cervical cancer screening.  If you have never attended the National Cervical Screening Programme, you can still find out if you are carrying the virus which leads to almost all cases of cervical cancer.

For 90% of women, using HPVCheck means you may never need to have a smear test again.

What is HPV?

HPV stands for Human papillomavirus, a  virus that is extremely common - with four in five people exposed to the virus at some point in their lives through sexual transmission or intimate contact. 

It is also the leading cause of cervical cancer in women, with 99.7% of cervical cancers being caused by HPV.

HPVCheck will test for 13 high-risk sub-types of HPV, identifying women potentially at a high risk of cervical cancer.

  • There are 13 types of high-risk HPV that cause cervical cancer. Our test reports on all 13 high-risk sub- types including HPV 16,18,31 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, 68, whereas the NHS does not currently report on HPV sub-type. 
  • Knowledge of HPV 16 and 18 status is useful not only from a risk point of view, but if you wish to be vaccinated with the HPV vaccine and you fall outside the age range of the NHS programme for HPV vaccination.
  • There are two vaccines approved for HPV, one covers HPV subtypes 6,11,16 and 18 and the second one covers HPV subtypes 6, 11, 16,18,31,33,45,52 and 58. You can find out more about the two vaccines here.

Disclaimer

Whilst undergoing cervical cancer screening will not completely prevent cervical cancer, it can help to detect cancers at an early stage.

No cervical cancer screening test can be guaranteed to be 100% accurate, and an abnormal result from HPVCheck will mean that further investigations are likely to be recommended.
