come on ladies smear tests

Post by daniel

Recent research uncovered that 5,346,000 women are no up to date with their cervical screening appointments. Incredibly 1.1 million admit they have never had a smear test, with pain, embarrassment and struggling to get to an appointment chiefly to blame.

GynaeHealth UK has launched GynaeCheck (a new, at-home, self-sampling device) for the 70% of UK women who believe that a self-collecting alternative should be offered to women of all ages. The research, commissioned by GynaeHealth UK to launch their Target 100,000 campaign reveals the average UK woman is 672 days late for her smear test appointment. For many the anxiety around smear tests could be alleviated if they were able to comfortably collect their own sample.

GynaeCheck is a self-sampling device which detects the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), the cause of 99.7% of cervical cancers. GynaeCheck has been expertly developed by gynaecologists, is highly accurate and has been used effectively by over 30,000 women across the globe. The GynaeCheck device is narrower than the speculum used by doctors and collects a fluid that has rinsed the cervix rather than a cervical brush sample, which makes it less painful than the traditional smear test.
