Testing for HPV in your 20s and 30s

“By the time you get to your late 20s or 30s, we are doing HPV testing as a baseline. But it can change. Maybe at 21 you had an abnormal test and an HPV test that was positive.  After that, you might always get an HPV test. The HPV test shows you if the HPV virus is active. Generally, a lot of us gynecologists think that 70 to 80 percent or more of patients who are sexually active – especially if you have multiple partners who have multiple partners – have already been exposed to HPV.”
