Why choose the Better2Know Female Swab?

Better2Know’s Female Swab is a private and confidential testing option available to women with symptoms in the genital area. This can include unusual discharge, painful urination, itching and/or unusual odour. This test will look for bacterial infections and is also a useful option for those who are symptomatic despite negative STI test results, as well as patients whose circumstances indicate that their infection may not have been acquired sexually. We suggest that you combine this test with a Comfort Screen.
