CARING ABOUT YOUR HEALTH IS COOL! Many times, reproductive health is not talked about and this needs to change. We need to spread awareness around the importance of reproductive health screenings, such as universal access to combined Pap and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) co-test. Screenings such as the Pap and HPV co-test can help early identify cervical cancer. 94.1% of cervical cancers and 99.7% of cervical pre-cancers were detected by Pap + HPV co-test. Prior to the invention of the Pap test, cervical cancer was the #1 cause of cancer-related death, and now its #15. Screenings are important. Screenings can save your life. Personally, I am grateful for routine check-ups and preventative care such as Pap screenings and HPV co-tests because they are vital components for maintaining my overall health.
