HPV Testing

For women 30 and older, HPV-DNA testing is part of your care and shouldn’t happen any more than every 3 years. Among younger women, HPV can clear itself on its own, but HPV takes longer to do so in Black women and girls. So make sure you talk to your doctor about your risk factors and whether or not you need to be tested.
