Smear tests

    When you go for a smear test does the smear pick up on any other infections eg bacterial vaginosis or do you have to request a separate test?

    You need to get swabs done for other infections.

    Would I have to ring and ask for these swabs to be done at the same time as the smear or separate?

    They can be the same time - saves both you and them time!

    Not many people have heard of this (http://www.probiotics-lovethatbug.com/cytolytic-vaginosis.html) but I have it and it is agony. Thought I had BV and tried treatments for it but it didn't help. I did some more research and actually have this. If you ask to be tested for thrush/BV and whaever else and it is clear then this could be your problem.
