This article presents the results of a sociological study aiming at documenting the experience of women in regards with cervical cancer screening. Twenty-four focus groups have been conducted, with a total of 125 participants, aged between 24 and 67. The results show that rather than one specific barrier, a cumulative range of factors and events affect screening attendance. To understand screening attendance ambivalence, it is important to take into consideration screening trajectories associated with diverse life stages.
