Petition Test for cervical cell changes, regardless of HPV negative results
Commit to testing for cervical cell changes, regardless of the HPV result.
With the latest changes, if you do not have high-risk HPV, your sample will not be looked at for cell changes. This will without a doubt increase cervical cancer deaths and later stage diagnosis.
Myself and a number of other women I know had HPV negative smear tests with cell changes that turned out to be cervical cancer. Had we only been tested for HPV and sent away for 3-5 years, we would not have survived.
