TRANSPREV: Fenway Health research study for people on the FTM spectrum

Are you 21 years or older and on the FTM spectrum? Fenway Health is interested in learning more about your experiences with or perceptions of Pap tests for cervical cancer screening. We want to use this information to make Pap tests more comfortable for people on the FTM spectrum.

You do not need to have had a Pap test before to participate. Feel free to share the link!The purpose of this research study is to learn more about experiences with, perceptions of, and barriers to cervical cancer screening, i.e. Pap tests or Pap smears, among people on the FTM spectrum. This will help us better understand what medical providers can do to make the process better for patients on the FTM spectrum.


Participation in this study is entirely voluntary. You don’t have to answer every question, and there is space near the end to give us any additional information that you wish we had asked about. We will not collect your name or any directly identifiable information. There is no monetary compensation for participating in this online survey.


The questions presented are taken from a full in-person interview. Please include as much detail as possible when you answer a question, since we won’t be able to follow up with you for any additional information. Stories and long thoughts are welcome! We are looking for descriptions of your experiences and opinions, rather than brief factual answers.


When presenting our findings, we may quote what you have told us, but we will not identify you (since we don’t know who you are!). If you have any concerns about confidentiality or how we will use this information, please contact Feel free to share the link to this interview to others on the FTM spectrum.
