Do I need to continue to have cervical screening after hysterectomy?

If you have had a subtotal hysterectomy, where the cervix is left behind, then you will need to continue to have cervical screening at the routine intervals. You should consult your Alana doctor to ask how often these need to be taken.

If you have had a radical hysterectomy for a cancer then you will need to continue cervical screening as directed by your doctor.

If you have had any other type of hysterectomy and your cervical screening history has always been normal, then you do not need to have further cervical screening. If you have had abnormal cervical screening results in the past, then you should ask your Alana doctor if these need to be continued.
