Getting infected with HPV is more common than you might think.
HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection and is the cause of more than 99% of cervical cancer cases. Cervical cancer is the tenth most common cancer among Singaporean women. A new case is diagnosed every two days, and one woman loses the fight against cervical cancer every five days in Singapore.
Even if you’ve only engaged in sexual activity once, or with the same partner over a long period, there is still a chance you could have the virus as HPV symptoms can develop up to 10 years later.
The good news is, there are two easy steps you can take to protect yourself.
Getting vaccinated will help protect you and your loved ones from serious HPV-related diseases like cervical cancer. When was the last time you talked to your doctor about the HPV vaccine? Make the conversation part of your next appointment.
Regular cervical cancer screening can easily help you prevent HPV-related diseases. Speak to your doctor to find out more.
