Screening for Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia Using Self-collected Menstrual Blood

The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility and efficacy of assessing HR-HPV DNA and HPV E6/E7 mRNA via self-collected menstrual blood in a smart menstrual pad. In other words, can the investigators detect the high risk strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV) that are associated with cervical cancer in self-collected menstrual blood, as an alternative to collecting vaginal swabs.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
