Is HPV test painful?


No, an HPV test is not typically painful. During the test, a healthcare provider will collect a sample of cells from the cervix using a small brush or swab. While the procedure may be uncomfortable or cause some mild cramping for some people, it is usually not painful. If you are concerned about discomfort, you can talk to your healthcare provider beforehand and ask for tips on how to make the procedure more comfortable.
