Oral swab


Hi @Dr_Paula, I’ve recently given a guy unprotected oral sex only and would like to get tested orally. The last test kit I received had a vaginal swab, can you you use the vaginal swab to do a throat swab instead?? How exactly do I do this?
Thanks :slight_smile:


Hello @Pinklady

Yes, you can use the same swab - you need to take the swab from both sides of your throat at the back - if you take it from the sides then it should be more comfortable than taking it from the back of the throat itself.

Many thanks,
