What you can do if you are worried about cervical screening

Share your feelings

It can be helpful to share any worries you have with people you know. You could talk to a friend or family member you trust. Chances are, they have experienced similar feelings.

Ask your GP or practice nurse any questions you have, and let them know if you have any concerns about the appointment. They will be able to reassure you.

Sometimes, it can help to talk to someone you don’t know. Our Online Community is a space where you can share your experiences, ask questions, or vent your emotions.

Read some tips

This blog post on our Online Community has tips for anyone nervous about their cervical screening test appointment.

Charities such as Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and The Eve Appeal provide facts and tips for cervical screening on their websites.

The NHS website provides information about what happens during a cervical screening appointment.
