I have changed my gender, do I need screening?

You can have cervical screening if you are aged between 25 and 64, and you have a cervix.

Cervical Screening Wales (CSW) is only able to invite individuals who are registered with their GP as female, or indeterminate/unspecified.

If you are registered as male, but have a cervix, you can still have cervical screening. You will need to arrange this with your GP practice who will be able to take your test and will send you your results.

If you are registered as female, but do not have a cervix, you do not need cervical screening. You may be invited for screening – if that happens, please ask your GP to let CSW know that you do not need screening.
