Swab of discharge

Hi all,

Was looking at advice. After contacting the doctors for reoccurring thrush I've had a reply stating I'll receive a swab to do of Discharge (sorry tmi). My only question is how do I do the swab ? Is it as simple as swabbing the inside?

Surely they will send instructions with the packet. If not, I'd ring them for advice.

Hi I had this last year.its basically like a long cotton but, you just gently insert it and do a couple of rotations, then put in the tube they provide.i hope this helps Smile

Thank you both! I'm thinking it's just the swab and a few rotations, I'll ask them for advice.
