Women's Health Advocates To Moms: We Can Beat Cervical Cancer!
Date:4/14/2009

here is what every woman should know to protect herself:

  • Girls and women ages 9-26: Ask your healthcare provider about the HPV vaccine. It protects against the two types of HPV that cause the majority of cervical cancers. Even women who have been vaccinated will still need to be screened.

  • Women age 21 or older (or within 3 years of becoming sexually active): Get the Pap test, which detects abnormal cells that can lead to cervical cancer.

  • Women age 30 or older: Get the Pap test and the HPV test together as part of routine cervical cancer screening. The HPV test detects the virus that causes cervical cancer, identifying those women at increased risk who will need to be monitored more closely.

Pearl of Wisdom pins are available for purchase at www.PearlofWisdom.us. All proceeds go to the U.S. Pearl of Wisdom Campaign Fund, which supports U.S.-based cervical cancer prevention activities. Visitors can also send Mother's Day e-cards featuring "virtual" pearls of wisdom about cervical cancer prevention through the website to special women in their lives.

Pearl of Wisdom campaign partners are also delivering the message to their members, colleagues and others, in honor of Mother's Day. The partners include American Medical Women's Association, the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance, the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals, the Balm In Gilead, the Coalition of Labor Union Women, the Global Summit of Women, the Hicks Foundation, the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health, the National Council of Women's Organizations, the National Women's Health Resource Center, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the Society for Women's
