Re: hpv testing

I see that you are a female so yes you can get tested for HPV. You can go to your routine gynecologist or if you haven't been to one, you need to go to a gynecologist. The gyn. will perform a papsmear (which includes taking a swab and rubbing it on the inside of your vagina on your cervix) to check for abnormal cells. Abnormal cells is what can indicate if you have HPV or not. If you have symptoms such as genital warts, it is easier for the gyn. to disgnose you with HPV. But she or he would still perform a papsmear to get a sample of your cells. Hope this helps!
