Looking after yourself

Signs and Symptoms

Taking part in cervical screening when you are invited is something that you can do to look after your health.

Early cervical cancer often has no symptoms. You should tell your doctor if you have any of the following, even if you have had a normal screening test:

  • Bleeding between periods, during or after sex or after the menopause (after your periods have stopped).
  • Unusual vaginal discharge.
  • Pain during sex, or lower tummy or back pain.
