Frequently asked questions

Does everyone with HPV get a colposcopy?

No. It depends on what your local screening guidelines say. Check with your GP and see what they advise. You may need to follow up your result privately if your local guidelines do not align with private HPV screening.

How long can you live with the HPV virus?

Most people will become infected with HPV in their lives and it will not cause any complications or symptoms. In most cases, your body will get rid of the infection for you, but in some cases, it can lead to genital warts which may need treatment from your doctor. You can live your entire life with HPV.

Almost all cervical cancers are caused by HPV, so it is important to attend your cervical screening and test yourself with an online HPV test kit if you think you may be at risk of infection. Cervical cancer is serious, but if found early can be treated.

How does HPV make you feel?

Most people will not experience any symptoms and most people do not realise they have it. But in some cases, it can cause genital warts that can be painful or itchy. You may also feel embarrassed if you have HPV, these feelings are normal but it is important to remember that 80% of people will become infected with the virus in their lifetime.

If your results show you have abnormal cell changes, it’s normal to feel upset, scared or angry. Try to confide in someone you trust or speak to your doctor about counselling services that may be available.

Is HPV an STI?

Yes, HPV is an STI. There are over 100 different types of HPV and around 40 can affect the genital area. The infection is passed on through direct sexual contact, but not just penetrative sex.
