Did you Know?
Each year more than 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with Cervical Cancer?
The MediSpa & Gynecology want you to know that there is a lot you can do to prevent cervical cancer.
HPV ( Human Papillomavirus) is a very common infection that is spread through sexual activity and it causes almost all the cases of cervical cancer.
About 79 million Americans have HPV, but many people with HPV are not aware that they are infected.
HPV is usually transmitted genital-to-genital, genital-to-anal, oral-to-genital although less often.
Studies show using a condom can reduce transmission to females.
The good news?
The HPV vaccine (shot) can prevent HPV
Cervical Cancer can be prevented with regular screening and follow up care
In Honor of National Cervical Cancer awarenes month, The MedSpa & Gynecology encourages:
** All women to start regular cervical cancer screenings at age 21 with a simple pap test
