My cervical screening test says I have HPV but the cells are inadequate and I need another test – what does this mean?

When HPV is found, we need to check the cells from your cervix to make sure it is not causing any changes at this time. We could not give a result for the cells in your sample. This might be because there were not enough cells for us to give you a result, or because there was a problem processing your sample.


You should have your test repeated, but please wait 3 months to allow the cells to grow back.
