HPV FDA Approved screening:

women ages 21 years and older  =  Pap, reflex to Aptima HPV if ASC-US 

women ages 30 years and older (ACOG limits age to 65)  =  Pap + Aptima HPV 

Our Recommended FDA HPV testing algorithm:

women ages 30-65 = Pap + HPV (co-testing)

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea testing:

all sexually active women ages 15-25

women at increased risk for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea
