What is GynaeCheck?
It’s a self-screening device that tests for the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) that causes around 99% of cervical cancers that can used an alternative to going to your local GP for your routine cervical screening (also known as a smear test). The device is 22cm in length and 1.6cm in diameter and takes a fluid sample from your cervix as opposed to the ‘scraping’ method used at your doctor’s surgery making it less evasive and more of a comfortable experience.

Who is GynaeCheck for?
This nifty little gadget is aimed at the 1 million woman aged 25 to 65 who miss or avoid their smear test appointments every year. Many women have talked about past smear test experiences as being uncomfortable and intrusive leading them to avoid appointments and potentially risking their health. A lot of women have said they just can’t find the time to fit in the appointment. Inline with the NHS smear test programme the kit is only available for women over 25 this is because having a test prior to this age has shown to be of more harm than good. For more information on this please check out this.

What are the benefits of GynaeCheck compared to going to the GP for routine checks?
You won’t need to wait for an appointment as you can do it in your own time.
You’re able do it in the comfort of your own home with no one watching or looking.
No getting undressed in front of strangers.
It’s not painful.
The kit arrives in discreet packaging with the free return postal box being small and plain; no one will ever know.
It is just as reliable as the NHS screening programme.

  1. I think lots more women would test on a more regular basis with home tests, there are often not enough hours in the day to do everything, so health seems to be the last thing you worry about.

  2. Yes, I think a lot of women who are very anxious about smear tests will like this idea.

  3. Oh for sure more women would do this! There seems to be so many bad experience stories online that I’m sure a lot have been put off. Being in control at home I’m sure would encourage women to get checked. Great idea!
