What is the GetTested HPV Test?

The GetTested HPV Test is a quick test for detecting human papillomavirus (HPV), the most common viral infection of the reproductive organs. This test uses a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay to qualitatively identify HPV antigens from cervical swab samples, which is a critical part of the screening process for cervical cancer, particularly caused by high-risk HPV types 16 and 18.

Who Should Take the Test and Why?

The HPV test is recommended for women as part of routine health check-ups, especially to detect early signs of potential HPV infections that could lead to cervical cancer. Considering that almost all cases of cervical cancer contain HPV DNA, it is crucial to identify and manage these infections early. This test is also relevant for individuals who have not been vaccinated against HPV or where vaccine coverage is insufficient.

Why is the HPV Test Important?

Early detection of HPV can lead to more effective treatment and better prognosis by preventing the development of more serious conditions like cervical cancer. GetTested's HPV Rapid Test offers high accuracy with a relative sensitivity and specificity exceeding 99%, making it a reliable tool in the fight against HPV-related diseases.

Who should take an HPV test?

All sexually active women should consider taking an HPV test, especially those between the ages of 30 and 65, as human papillomavirus (HPV) is a common sexually transmitted infection that can lead to cervical cancer. The HPV test is particularly important for women who have had multiple sexual partners, an early sexual debut, or a weakened immune system, as these factors increase the risk of HPV infection. Even women who have received a normal result on their latest Pap test should consider HPV testing, as it can identify high-risk HPV types that do not always show cell changes immediately. Regular testing is crucial for early detection and prevention of potentially cancer-causing HPV infections.
