Lesbian and Bisexual Women are Being Incorrectly Told They Don't Need Smear Tests, LGBTI Charities Say
Women who have sex with women are often wrongly told they do not need to attend cervical screening test, LGBT charities have warned. Research highlighted by the National LGB&T Partnership - an alliance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender charities - reveals that 37 per cent of women who have sex with women have been told they do not require a cervical screening test due to their sexual orientation. This results in half of all eligible lesbian and bisexual women never having had a smear test, they said.
