Do you have a possible bacterial infection where they need to culture a sample from the discharge in your vagina? That's all I can think of
Every pregnant woman gets a culture done at 35 wks (I think) to check for bacteria called Strep B. If you're positive for it then you will receive antibiotics in your iv during labor and delivery so that the bacteria won't pass to the baby. Its harmless to the mother and has no symptoms. Nothing bad some women just has it.
How for along are you it may be your initial pap smear
I am 36 weeks I know he said checking for strep b I just . Didnt no what I hgtv ad to undress 4
How are they supposed to swab your vagina area if you have pants on? I'm sure you will only need to take bottoms off and cover with a sheet. They are doctors and I'm sure he has seen it all before. He wouldn't make you undress if he didn't need to
Im not stupid I didnt know the process of what a culture was didnt remember that with my first I remember getting checked for dilation. .. no need for the smart comments
Well my previous doctor let us swab ourselves for strept B so maybe you never had to undress and that's why you can't remember...I have never had the doc do the swab on me and that has been four pregnancies
Thanks jessbryan ur probably right
