There’s no way to prevent cervical cancer, but you can lower your risk with a few lifestyle changes.
HPV can be spread through unprotected sex, so using a condom could also lower your risk of developing the infection.
The NHS cervical cancer vaccination programme aims to protect against four types of HPV. Girls are offered the vaccine when they’re 12 or 13 years old, but it’s available to patients up to 18 years old.
