January is Cervical Health Awareness Month

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month, and Women’s Health Center wants you to know that there’s a lot you can do to prevent cervical cancer.
HPV (human papillomavirus) is a very common infection that spreads through sexual activity. It’s also a major cause of cervical cancer. About 79 million Americans currently have HPV, but many people with HPV don’t know they are infected.
The good news? The HPV vaccine can prevent HPV. And, cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening tests (Pap tests) and follow-up care.

In honor of National Cervical Health Awareness Month, Women’s Health Center encourages:
Women to start getting regular Pap tests at age 21
Parents to make sure pre-teens get the HPV vaccine at age 11 or 12
Teens and young adults may want to consider the HPV vaccine if they didn’t get it as pre-teens. Women up to age 26 and men up to age 21 can still get the vaccine

You may be able to get these services at little or no cost to you. Check with your insurance company to learn more or go to http://www.nccc-online.org/hpvcervical-cancer/cervical-health-awareness-month/
