  1. Cervical screening (previously known as a smear test) aims to detect abnormal cells in the cervix that could develop into cancer.
    If you’ve never had any sexual contact with a man or a woman (this includes penetrative sex and skin-to-skin contact of the genital area), your risk of developing cervical cancer is very low.
    Women who have never been sexually active may therefore decide not to have a cervical screening test when invited.
    However, you can still have a test if you want one. If you’re not sure, talk to your GP or practice nurse.
