Recent changes to Cervical Screening Testing (CST) now allow for self-collected sampling. CST is a simple test used to check the health of a woman’s cervix.
The CST looks for human papillomavirus (HPV) infection as HPV infections can cause abnormal cervical cell changes that may lead to cervical cancer. This usually takes a long time, about 10 to 15 years. Nearly all cervical cancers are caused by HPV. If you have had the HPV vaccine you will still need to participate in regular cervical screening. This is because the vaccine does not protect against all types of HPV that are known to cause cervical cancer.
In Australia women are advised to have a CST every 5 years.
From 1 July 2022, the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) has expanded screening test options, offering self-collection as a choice to all women participating in cervical screening. This means that all people with a cervix aged 25-74 years will have the option to screen using either a self-collected vaginal sample or a cervical smear sample taken by your doctor.
The NCSP are promoting these changes with the aim to maximise cervical screening participation, particularly among under-screened and never-screened women.
