January has been designated as Cervical Health Awareness Month. While it is always important to know the status of your health, during this month, you may wish to highlight issues related to cervical cancer, HPV disease and the importance of early detection.
You should, if you haven’t already, learn YOUR risk for HPV/precancer and/or cervical cancer as well the signs, symptoms, prevention, detection and treatment. You could also highlight recent advances and research in the field. Early detection and education are key to understanding cervical health so along with gaining that knowledge, practicing safe sex should be on the list to battling cervical cancer and HPV. Remember that SAFE SEX IS THE BEST SEX and knowledge is key.
