High vaginal swab

Home > Tests and Diagnostics > Microbiology > High vaginal swab

A high vaginal swab is a technique used to obtain a sample of discharge from the vagina. This is then sent to a laboratory for investigation. A high vaginal swab is used to diagnose vaginal infections including bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas vaginalis.

If you are feeling uncomfortable ‘down there’ it may be helpful to book in for a consultation with Midland Health. We understand that gynaecology is a sensitive yet essential part of healthcare, so, our experienced GP will do everything they can to put you at ease. This may include discussion regarding sexual and health history, lifestyle factors and recommendations for further testing. Your results will be shared with you discretely via your chosen method of communication, and if positive, you will be invited back in to answer any questions and discuss treatment.
