Win GynaeCheck Worth £129 – 3 Second Cervical Cancer Screen You Can do at Home

Win GynaeCheck Worth £129 – 3 Second Cervical Cancer Screen You Can do at Home

When it comes to smear tests, I always make sure I get checked regularly. When Isabelle was tiny, I had a positive smear test once and the not knowing if it was cancer or not was very stressful. Luckily a week or so later I got all clear, and the following 2 years I had a test done every 6 months.

I understand it can be tricky for some people to attend a GP, and having a smear test is not one of the most comfortable things, but I would never risk my life if having the test could save my life.

Today I have some great news for you ladies who are not keen on having tests at your GPs. I am presenting you GynaeCheck, a revolutionary test to detect cervical cancer risk will offer women a comfortable and private alternative to smear tests. It has been expertly developed by gynaecologists and is a self-sampling device which detects the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), the cause of 99.7% of cervical cancers.

Using a vaginal lavage technique*, the device collects a fluid sample from the cervix which is then sent to a laboratory to be tested for the high risk strains of HPV known to lead to cervical cancer.

GynaeCheck was very simple to use and it took only three seconds to collect a sample of cervical cells. As no training is required, the self-sampler eliminates the need to book a doctor’s appointment or attend a surgery. GynaeCheck is delivered via post in discreet packaging and the sample is returned via a pre-paid envelope with test results expected within 10 days.

Each year in the UK, 3,100 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, but the disease is largely treatable if caught early. The GynaeCheck detects the presence of HPV and therefore the women at a higher risk of developing cervical cancer.

Those who test positive will receive advice on the next steps, directing them to a GP or gynaecologist. Women should note a positive HPV result does not mean they have cervical cancer, but HPV presence puts them at a slightly higher risk so they should see a healthcare professional for a further cytology test. Those with a negative test are advised to screen again with GynaeCheck in two years’ time.

In line with the national screening programme, the device is available to women aged 25 and can be ordered online. To launch Target100,000 campaign GynaeHealth are offering GynaeCheck at a reduced rate of £99 for the entire month of September as part of Gynaecologic Cancer Awareness Month. 

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 11.10.34

Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women under the age of 35 and approximately 3,100 women are diagnosed in the UK every year. Despite a nationwide cervical cancer screening programme that has been in place since the 1980s, only 66% of younger women and 80% of older women attend screening. If cervical cancer is diagnosed in the early stages, up to 90% of women under 40 will survive which is why early detection is so important.

As cervical cancer is often a slow disease process, it can be detected and very successfully treated in the pre-cancerous stages. If a woman attends for regular screening then cancer is very unlikely to develop, as pre-cancerous changes can be treated in a very timely manner.

For the latest giveaway I have teamed up with GynaeHealth who are offering a GynaeCheck worth £129 to one lucky All Baby Advice reader. If you would like to enter, please follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below.

Good luck!

    I would really love to win this, as I’m very disabled and can’t leave the house and it’s very hard to go and get my check ups, although my nurse and doctor do visit from time to time. This would help ease my mind a bit knowing I could do this from home.

    I’d like to win because having a chronic illness means that I find it incredibly hard to get to the GP. I am ashamed to say I am 28 and never had a smear (I’ve been pregnant both times I’ve been called) so I definitely think this would help to ease my mind and would mean that I wouldn’t have to worry about not getting to the GP for a smear if I can’t get out of the house.

  • Zoe Hermitage September 21, 2015 10:48 am

    I have been symptomatic for gynae cancer for a while now but because of my age (Just turned 30) and the fact that my smear test isn’t due until the end of next year i keep getting fobbed off by the various gps I have seen I have been to so many now to try and get someone to take my concerns seriously and all i keep getting told is “it is very unlikely to get a gynae cancer under 30” I have two children under the age of 6 I have no idea what will happen if it turns out I have got cancer after so long of trying to get it looked at winning this test would mean the world to them and me as it would either stop me worrying so much or enable me to shut the drs up and get the treatment i need before its too late
