Cervical Cancer Prevention

Cáncer de cuello uterino

Cervical cancer, also known as cervical cancer, occurs in the cells of the lower uterus, due to a virus that is spread by sexual contact. In early stages this cancer has no symptoms, but when screening tests can be treated in time.

The American Cancer Association states that both the Pap test and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) test are specifically used as ways to detect cancers in their early stages.

Both screening tests can be done in the doctor’s office with your trusted gynecologist; but you need to set the test date in advance to get the proper preparation. The best time to take the test is 5 days after the end of the menstrual period. But other indications such as:

  • Not having sex for 2 or 3 days before.
  • Avoid showers and vaginal medications.
  • Do not use tampons.

How to prevent cervical cancer?

  • Get vaccinated against HPV
  • Limit the number of sexual partners.

  • Perform screening tests periodically.

Sometimes it is during pregnancy when the presence of this cancer is detected, if it is at an early stage you can continue with the pregnancy and then start with the corresponding treatment, but sometimes you must induce abortion. To make this decision, the doctor must evaluate the risks that may affect you or endanger your baby’s life.

If you are planning to get pregnant, try to get screened for this cancer, if you have it and before starting treatments such as chemotherapy, you can use the cryopreservation service to keep your eggs frozen, that is, preserve your fertility and use them when you’re ready to be pregnant.

When after treatment you can no longer produce healthy eggs, you can resort to looking for egg donors or embryos from those couples who already have children and still have frozen embryos.
