When was your last Pap Smear?

Pap tests save lives.
Pap tests (or Pap smears) pick up changes to your cells that can be treated before cervical cancer develops.

Regular Pap tests can reduce your risk of being diagnosed with cervical cancer by up to 96%.

Most women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer in Australia, have not had regular Pap tests.

If you’re aged between 18 and 69 years and have ever been sexually active you need to have a Pap test every two years — even if you’ve had the cervical cancer vaccine.
