Sti swab test


#1

@Dr_Paula if i made a mistake and swabbed my urethra instead of vagina will it affect the results?
Did a test for gonnorhea and chlamydia

Hello @Kirra

It would be very difficult to miss the vagina and take a swab from the urethra as the urethra has a very small hole indeed - to small to insert one of our swabs.

Many thanks

Paula

Hi, I’m pretty sure I’ve just done the same and a bit freaked out! I was rushing which is my fault, but it hurt and I felt like I was about to pee! It now hurts when I urinate so I’m almost certain that’s what happened. IF it did happen, would there be any lasting damage?

You’ll be alright…
The pain will be there for like 3 days and you’ll start peeing normal again
