Take your own cervical screening sample at your regular UFS Medical Centre! A self-collected test is quick, easy, private and reliable.
Anyone who is eligible for cervical screening can choose the self-collection option for their next Cervical Screening Test. With the self-collection option you can take your own vaginal sample with a swab and without a speculum.
The self-collection test sample is used to look for human papillomavirus (HPV) – finding HPV early is your best protection against cervical cancer. A self-collected Cervical Screening Test is just as accurate at detecting HPV as a Cervical Screening Test taken by your doctor or specially-trained nurse.
This test is done at the doctor’s or other health setting, usually in private behind a screen or in the bathroom. It is quick, easy, private and reliable.
