Related to that idea, in theory there should be mileage in testing for HPV in a two stage process instead of invasive smear test. Got told by someone that idea was being investigated. No idea where it's at, anyone know? Perhaps with further drops as the HPV vaccinated population ages maybe it'll mature/come about.Last time I went for my smear, reluctantly as usual, I was told that if you are a virgin (with a vagina, of course), the test is not necessary.
I didn't know that!
