Should trans men have cervical screening tests?

Trans men and non-binary people who have had a total hysterectomy to remove their cervix do not need cervical screening.

Trans men and non-binary people who still have a cervix should have cervical screening to help prevent cervical cancer.

When trans men and non-binary people with a cervix will be invited for cervical screening

If you're a trans man, or non-binary and assigned female at birth, and you're registered with your GP as female, you'll receive invitations for cervical screening:

  • every 3 years at ages 25 to 49
  • every 5 years at ages 50 to 64

If you're a trans man registered with a GP as male, you will not receive automatic invitations. You can still have cervical screening. You'll need to ask your GP practice for an appointment.

If you’re a trans woman or non-binary person assigned male at birth, you do not need cervical screening as you do not have a cervix.

How to stop being invited for cervical screening

Contact your GP to ask to be taken off their cervical screening list if:

  • you no longer have a cervix, but still receive invitations to screening
  • you still have a cervix, but you do not want to be invited for screening
