Love Island’s Amy Hart provides smear test and HPV update

Love Island star Amy Hart has shared a health update with fans after going for a colonoscopy.

The 29 year old revealed that she had been diagnosed with a positive HPV result back in May and that she would need further tests.

If HPV is not found in a sample, the risk of that person getting cervical cancer is very low and there is no need to have any further tests to check for abnormal cervical cells.

However, if HPV is found, the person may need either another cervical screening test or a coloposcopy; a different test to look at the cervix if both HPV and abnormal cells are found.

Taking to Instagram, Amy revealed that she had undergone a colonoscopy today.

“Before I went in there, they told me that they would only biopsies if they really, really had to,” she said. “Surprise, surprise, they really, really had to take the biopsies and they said on the pictures that the cells do look quite high grade so [they’ll] probably have to take them out and send them off for testing so I’ll have to go back.

“So yeah, not great news but I’m really glad that I had all my smears on time. So if you’re watching this thinking, ‘Oh, I’m not sure.’ Please, please go and book it.

“It’s Cervical Cancer Awareness Week this week, please go book it so they can catch things early.”

The former Islander was flooded with well wishers, with one commenting: “Great your sharing this for others to take note . Bless you . Sending love To all those brave ladies.”

While another commented: “sending lots of love, your an amazing lady! Thank you for being a genuine and caring role model. Finger crossed everything will be okay.”

A third wrote: “I’m HPV positive too and have to wait until March to see if it’s still there. So important to have smears and don’t put them off. Fingers crossed you are ok.”

She previously spoke about how boyfriend Sam had reacted to her diagnosis, explaining: “I literally cough and I tell Sam so we had just met so obviously I did tell him.

“Like I say I tell Sam everything so then it’s easier for him to be supportive. I mean not many boys have girlfriends who talk about their innards in national tv so he’s pretty desensitised now.”
