Re: cervical cancer

Cervical cancer is linked to human papilloma virus. This virus is common in the population and can often be present with no symptoms at all. The more sexual partners you have the greater the chance that one of them will be carrying the virus. Once you are infected the chances are higher that you may develop cervical cancer. This is why women who have ever had sex need to have regular PAP smears.

Same with or without condoms? It still makes it higher?

I suppose theoretically a condom should protect you but the general rule is have regular PAP smears after you start having sex. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
