Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Before answering your query, I would like to know few things.

Reason for taking a swab test?

Do you have any lesions like blisters on your vagina or vulva?

Was this swab taken from the vagina or from a particular lesion on the vulva?

Do you have any vaginal discharge or pain, fever ?

Have you also taken a Pap test?

Kindly revert back with answers.

Take care.
