High Vaginal Swab – Postal

£95.00

A high vaginal swab (HVS) is a procedure performed to detect the presence of vaginal thrush, bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas vaginalis. Abnormal vaginal discharge is most commonly caused by infection; less commonly, abnormal vaginal discharge can have a non-infective cause. Only the patient can be aware of her own “normal” amount and type of discharge. Abnormal vaginal discharge is characterized by a change of colour, consistency, volume, or odour, and may be associated with symptoms such as itches, soreness, dysuria, pelvic pain, or intermenstrual or post-coital bleeding.
