Cervical Screening Tests

Women over the age of 25 (or 2 years after you’ve been sexually active) need to have a cervical screening to test for irregularities that could lead to cervical cancer. The cervical screening test is a new more effective test for cervical cancer, replacing the Pap test in 2017.

What To Expect From A Cervical Screen Test

Cervical Screening tests are much like the old Pap tests. Your doctor or nurse takes a sample of cells from the cervix and sends them to a laboratory to be analyzed. Your doctor will discuss the results with you and recommend the next steps depending on the outcome.

     // Negative HPV Result - You do not need to have another cervical screening test for 5 years.
     // Positive HPV Result - A positive result doesn't automatically mean cancer but the individual results will be discussed.
     // Unclear Results - If the test comes back inconclusive, you may be required to come back within 6-12 weeks for an additional test.

Contraception

Using contraception means that pregnancy is a choice. All forms of contraception lower the risk of unwanted pregnancy and some reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STI’s).

There are 2 main categories of female contraception:

Barrier Contraception

Barrier contraceptives prevent sperm from entering the uterus and fallopian tubes. There are few side effects but are more prone to human error. Barrier contraceptives include:

     // Male Condom
     // Female Condom
     // Cervical Cap
     // Diaphragm
     // Contraceptive Sponge

// Male Condom
// Female Condom
// Cervical Cap
// Diaphragm

Hormonal Contraception

Hormonal contraceptives contain small amounts of estrogen and progesterone which inhibit or augment the natural hormone cycle. Hormonal contraceptives include:

     // The Pill
     // Injections
     // Vaginal Ring
     // Contraceptive Implant
     // Contraceptive Patch

Other devices such as the Intrauterine device (IUD) can be hormonal or non-hormonal. Spermicide is chemical and often used with diaphragms or condoms.

Implanon

Implanon is a popular device that’s implanted under the skin of the arm and slowly releases Etonogestrel into the bloodstream. The device prevents the release of the egg from the ovaries and causes changes to the cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to enter the womb.  

At King Street Medical, your doctors are equipped to help you choose the best contraceptive for your personal needs. If you would like to discuss any female health issues, be sure to contact us to book your appointment.
