The New HPV Test You Should Ask Your Doctor About

By Shari SimsThere's a new, more sensitive way to screen for cervical cancer — yet only 15 percent of doctors are using it. Why the Pap may no longer be enough. Suppose there were a screening test for cervical cancer that could detect potential dangers with far more sensitivity than the Pap. A test so reliable that when it was done with the Pap, you could trust the results nearly 100 percent. Sounds like all women would be getting it, right? Well...there is such a screen — the HPV test. It's been...

I'm shy! All my friends know that about me, so they were shocked to see me out dancing with the Pussycat Dolls. They're like, "Who is this person?" I do things like that and I'm literally crying right before I go out, I'm so nervous. Even on Dancing with the Stars I was shaking before I went out.

How do you handle pressure like that?

I just try to make it a point to do things that are out of my comfort zone. My stepfather, Bruce Jenner, always says to do things that are outside the box for you, because that's how you learn and grow. My mom signed me up for Dancing with the Stars and I said no, I can't do that! But I'm so glad I did. I end up loving doing things like that, and it makes me feel better when I've done them.

How do you and your boyfriend, New Orleans Saints star Reggie Bush, keep the fires burning? What are your top three tips for sustaining a long-term relationship?

First, take an interest in what the other person cares about. I watch Sports Center and all the guy stuff I wouldn't have been interested in before, and he has to watch all my E! entertainment shows. You'll probably surprise yourself with what you get interested in. I'll say to him, "Oh, so this guy is moving to your team!"

Second, make special date nights to go out. We could be super lazy and get into a rut, but we make sure we get out and make things special.

Third, remember that relationships are simple. Everyone thinks it's so complicated. We all just want to be appreciated, and the little things really help.

What's your idea of the perfect date night?

Getting take-out food, getting in bed and having a bed picnic! With a big towel on the bed, so nothing gets messy because I'm such a neat freak. I'll make cupcakes for dessert.

You're known for your sexy, fit image. How do you stay in shape?
