If you’re aged 25 to 74 years, it’s recommended you have a cervical screening test every 5 years.

To check when you’re next due for your cervical screening test, phone the National Cancer Screening Register on 1800 627 701.

If you have a cervix and have had sex (any type of sex*), it’s recommended to have a cervical screening test every 5 years from the age of 25.

This test will look for HPV on the cervix and monitor any changes.

Detecting HPV and monitoring changes is important in preventing cervical cancer.

You can learn more about HPV and self-collection here: What is HPV and what are the cervical screening options?

*This includes skin to skin genital contact, finger penetration, oral sex, or sharing of toys.

Self-collection is simply doing the cervical screening test yourself.

For self-collection you’ll need to see a doctor or health clinic and request a self-collection cervical screening test.

Self-collection is just as accurate as a clinician collected swab.

Your doctor, nurse or health worker will then provide you with instructions for self-collection. This will enable you to, in private, collect your own cells from your vagina/front-hole using a cotton swab.

Your results should be available in two weeks.
