During sex education classes, adolescent girls are often cautioned from two things: jumping into sex too early or having multiple sexual partners.

Often, medical practitioners stress the importance of regular pap smears and getting Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.

HPV is spread through sexual intercouse and is the cause of the dreaded cervical cancer.

Reports indicate it takes years for abnormal cervical cells to develop into cancer meaning it is paramount for every woman to get frequent screenings.

If detected early, cervical cancer can be treated. Pap smears should be repeated after every three years for women aged 21-65.

Research shows women who have given birth a lot of times, used contraceptives or are infected with HIV are at a higher risk of developing the illness.

TUKO.co.ke lined up a few signs which can be linked to cervical cancer. It is however important to note that the following symptoms could be an indication of a different disease.

It is therefore important to always seek medical advice whenever you feel or spot any changes in your body.
