Can you check for HPV at home?


There are currently no HPV tests that are approved by the FDA for at-home use. While there are HPV tests that can be performed at home, they require a sample of cells to be collected from the cervix or vagina, and it is not recommended that individuals attempt to collect their own samples at home.

Furthermore, interpreting the results of an HPV test requires medical expertise and knowledge of the specific type of HPV detected. Therefore, it is important to consult with a healthcare provider if you have concerns about HPV or if you believe you may have been exposed to the virus. Your healthcare provider can perform an HPV test and recommend appropriate next steps based on the results.
