We are talking about a more sensitive issue today but something us females need to talk about more freely. We need to spread the word on topics like HPV, cervical cancer, pap smears and affordable healthcare solutions for all us females.

HPV and Cervical Cancer

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most commonly transmitted sexually transmitted infection (STI) affecting near 80 million Americans. MOST men and women will become infected with HPV at some point in their lives so anyone who is sexually active needs to be tested regularly.

HPV can even cause cervical cancer and every year near 34,000 are newly diagnosed.

You can check your risk of HPV and cervical cancer with simple pap smear or HPV test. For women over the age of 30, the 3 options below are recommended :

  • have a pap smear every three years
  • an HPV test every five years
  • a pap smear and HPV test every five years


Nurx is a judgment-free healthcare company that provides convenient,  affordable healthcare all through the US. Sure, Nurx offers convenience to all but truly focus on those women who don’t have access to affordable healthcare, don’t have insurance or live too far a healthcare clinic. Nurx is helping women take control of their health.

Nurx offers the the HPV Home Screening Test Kit for only $15 for those with insurance or $69 for those without insurance. This price includes the shipping and processing of your kit. 

*The Nurx HPV Home Screening Test is preventative care, NOT treatment. Nurx Home HPV Screening Test does NOT replace doctors nor diagnose cervical cancer.

How I Tested Myself for HPV at Home

Like many women, I find it hard to stay on a consistent schedule with my gynecologist and all doctors at that! One of my kids sneeze and I rush to make an appointment but myself… eh… not so much. The HPV Home Screening Test Kit helps me screen myself for HPV and cervical cancer between pap smear appointments so I can be confident that I am healthy down below.

HPV Home Screening Test Kit

Using the HPV Home Screening Test Kit is quick and convenient. The kit will be delivered right to your front door and comes with:

  • An extra long q-tip
  • A plastic tube
  • A plastic bag
  • A sticker with a barcode
  • And a prepaid return envelope

Easy to follow to instructions come in your kit so make sure to read them when your kit arrives! Hold the swab with one hand and insert the swab just like you would with a tampon. Gently turn the swab in a circle against the wall of your vagina for 30 seconds. Then drop the swab in the tube, and drop it in the bag. BAM! Done. Place the bag in the pre-paid envelope, and drop it in the mail! Once the medical team at Nurx receives your kit, it only takes a few days for results as they test for 14 strains of HPV.

    1. Yes, it is nice to have that option because sometimes we just dont have time to take off work and see the doctor. It is great for those hectic times in life.

  1. I think it is a good solution for people who don’t have access to affordable health care. It can also be a traumatic appointment for some people so it is so nice that it can be done at home.

    1. Thats true Rachel- I didnt even think about that but there are some women that probably avoid the gyno because of some trauma and now they can take the test in the comfort of their home.

  2. what an interesting kit. I love how there is now a kit to get yourself tested at home rather than feeling awk going out and getting it done. It’s always important to have great healthcare too
