    Ok so today i had an internal and a swabb for 'b strep' the midwife said, the 'internal' part was fine but then she shoved the swab up my..well the part where you pee! and it KILLLED omg i was in agony! IS that really where she was meant to put it?? i mean, it wasnt a horrible experiance because i felt so much comfier having a midwife do my internal but my godddd did the swab hurt!

    i've never had a swab like that before..has anyone else?? :S

    My strep b swab was just done at the opening of the vagina and the outter edge of my bum. They only need to be the outter edge as it is just a culture.

    Dont know why they had to shove it up far anywhere... Sorry you had to experience that!
