Human Papilloma Virus Test (HPV Test)

The human papillomavirus (HPV) test is a test that detects the presence of HPV in cervical cells. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that can cause cervical cancer and other types of cancer, such as anal, vaginal, vulvar and throat cancer.

There are two types of HPV tests: one that tests for the presence of HPV in cervical cells, and another that tests for the presence of high-risk strains of HPV that are associated with an increased risk of cervical cancer.

The HPV test is usually performed as a cervical cancer screening test, along with a Pap smear. It is recommended for women starting at the age of 30 to 35, or if their Pap smear result is abnormal. It can be performed on a sample of cervical cells collected during a pelvic exam or as a self-collected sample.

It is important to note that HPV is very common and most people who are sexually active will get HPV at some point in their lives. Most HPV infections go away on their own and do not cause any harm, but in some cases they can lead to cervical cancer if not detected and treated.

Who Should Take HPV Test?

The human papillomavirus (HPV) test is typically recommended for women as a cervical cancer screening test, particularly for those at higher risk of developing cervical cancer. The test is usually recommended for women starting at the age of 30 to 35, or if their Pap smear result is abnormal.

The test is also recommended for women who have certain risk factors for cervical cancer such as:

  • A weakened immune system
  • A history of abnormal Pap test results
  • A history of cervical, vaginal, or vulvar cancer
  • Exposure to diethylstilboestrol (DES), a drug once prescribed to pregnant women
  • HIV infection
  • Long-term use of oral contraceptives
  • Smoking

The test is not recommended for men, as there is no direct screening test for HPV-associated cancers in men. It is important to note that HPV is a sexually transmitted infection, so people who have had multiple sexual partners, have a new sexual partner or have unprotected sex are at a higher risk of HPV.

It’s important to follow the guidelines of your healthcare provider and/or the national guidelines of your country, as they may differ. It’s also important to note that an HPV test is not a diagnostic test, and a positive test result does not necessarily mean that an individual has cervical cancer. A follow-up with a doctor is required for diagnosis and treatment.

HPV Test Preparation

There is usually no special preparation required for an HPV test. However, some general guidelines to follow include:

  • Scheduling the test for a time when you are not menstruating. It’s best to avoid having an HPV test while you’re on your period, as the menstrual blood can affect the accuracy of the test results.
  • Avoiding sexual intercourse, douching, or using vaginal creams or suppositories for 24 hours before the test.
  • Avoiding using talcum powder or other products on the vulva for at least 24 hours before the test.
  • Inform your healthcare provider about any medication you are taking, as some medications can affect the test results.

It is important to follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider or the laboratory that will be performing the test. It is also important to note that an HPV test is not a diagnostic test, and a positive test result does not necessarily mean that an individual has cervical cancer. A follow-up with a doctor is required for diagnosis and treatment.

It’s also worth mentioning that HPV vaccination is available for both men and women, and it can prevent most cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancers caused by HPV. It is usually recommended to be administered to people between the ages of 9 to 45.

HPV Test Conditions

There are certain conditions that can affect the results of an HPV test and make them inaccurate. These include:

  • Recent sexual activity: Sexual activity can cause inflammation in the cervix, which can lead to a false positive result on the HPV test.
  • Recent pelvic exam: A recent pelvic exam can cause irritation in the cervix, which can lead to a false positive result on the HPV test.
  • Recent procedures or treatments: Recent procedures or treatments such as a colposcopy, LEEP or cone biopsy can cause inflammation in the cervix, which can lead to a false positive result on the HPV test.
  • Menstruation: Menstrual blood can affect the accuracy of the test results.
  • Vaginal infections: Vaginal infections such as yeast or bacterial vaginosis can cause inflammation in the cervix, which can lead to a false positive result on the HPV test.

It is important to inform your healthcare provider or the laboratory of any conditions or recent events that may affect the results of the test, such as recent sexual activity, pelvic exam or procedures, menstrual cycle, vaginal infections or any other relevant information to ensure that the results of the test can be interpreted correctly.

It is also important to note that an HPV test is not a diagnostic test, and a positive test result does not necessarily mean that an individual has cervical cancer. A follow-up with a doctor is required for diagnosis and treatment.
