January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. NWC Naturals® wants you to know that there’s a lot you can do to prevent cervical cancer. About 79 million Americans currently have HPV (human papillomavirus), the most common sexually transmitted disease. HPV is a major cause of cervical cancer.
- HPV can be prevented by the HPV vaccine
- Cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening
In honor of National Cervical Health Awareness Month, NWC Naturals® encourages women to start getting regular Pap tests at age 21. Taking small steps can help keep you safe and healthy. Get your Well-Woman visit every year.
If desired, both men and women may be able to get the HPV vaccine at no cost thanks to the health care reform law. Check with your insurance company.
