Furthermore, can you get cervical cancer without having HPV?
Because HPV is so common, any woman who has ever had any sexual contact with another person could get cervical cancer. But most women who get HPV do not get cervical cancer. Women who get their tests for cervical cancer as often as they should are much less likely to get cervical cancer.
Furthermore, does a smear test hurt if you are a virgin? Therefore smear testing is not necessary in an adult virgin. The procedure could also be very uncomfortable for the woman because the vagina and the surrounding muscles and ligaments would be likely to be tight. This tightness could also make it difficult to actually perform the test.
