Cervical Health Info Line

Women's Health has partnered with the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) to launch the Cervical Health Info Line. The Cervical Health Info Line is a confidential service, staffed by registered nurses and midwives, which provides women concerned about cervical screening (Pap smears) with additional support and advice. They can answer a variety of questions, including:

  • How do I prepare for a Pap smear and what can I expect?

  • Are Pap smears safe during pregnancy?

  • Pap smear results and what they mean

  • Are Pap smears required after a hysterectomy?

  • Cervical cancer treatments and side effects

  • Do I need to have a Pap smear if I have been immunised against HPV?

  • Cervical screening after menopause

  • Discussing the proposed changes to cervical screening.
