Cervical Screening Test

 

If you have previously had a Pap Smear test with a normal result:

  • before 23 years old, you should get screened at the age  of 25 years. 
  • at 23 years or older, you should get screened two years after your last Pap Smear test. 

If you have not previously had a Pap Smear test, even if you are sexually active, it is safe to commence screening at 25 years of age. 

If you have received an abnormal test result for your last Pap or Cervical Screening Test, continue to follow the advice given to you by your GP. 

If you have received an unsatisfactory test result for your last Pap Test, you should get screened at the age of 25 years. 

If you, at any age, have symptoms such as unusual vaginal bleeding, discharge or pain during sexual intercourse, you should see your GP as soon as possible.

This clinic will be running fortnightly on a Thursday. The clinic is for any advice or treatment in relation to sexual health and contraceptive care.

These appointments are for both males and females who are wanting an appointment solely to do with sexual health. Which may include; Mirena IUDs, Implanons STD Screening, or Cervical Screening.

For more information or to book one of these sexual health and contraceptive advice appointments, please contact the lovely ladies at the Summerdale Medical reception on 03 6344 7177.

Our consultant female practitioner who is conducting this clinic will make a minimum of 30 minute appointments and longer for procedures.

Due to the length of these appointments we would ask that, should you not require or are unable to attend the appointment that you ring to cancel at least 2 hours prior to the appointment. Failure to do so will mean that you receive a “Did Not Attend” (DNA) fee added to your account.
