“A few years ago I came up HPV-positive. Thankfully, since I get my Pap regularly, I was able to catch that in time and take the proper precautions, today I am HPV free. HPV can turn into cervical cancer, there are more than 150 subtypes of it & some, such as HPV-16 & HPV-18, increase the risk of developing the disease. That’s why it’s very important to start preventative care as soon as possible! Before Pap screenings cervical cancer was the number one killer in women, today it has become a number 15!”
