The screening programme recommends screening regulary for women between 25 and 69 years of age. The aim is to prevent cervical cancer. More than half of women diagnosed with cervical cancer have not attended screening as recommended. Cervical cancer also affects young women.
You need to make an appointment with your GP (fastlege) or gynecologist for smear-taking.
