Swabs for Infection and Pap Exams
If you requested to have a pap exam and/or swabs, to check for bacterial vaginosis, gonorrhea and chlamydia, the nurse or counselor would have asked you where we could contact you privately by phone or email. If you have a negative result, you will not be contacted. If you have a positive result, you will be contacted within 1-2 weeks after the procedure. If you have an infection the nurse will have to call in a prescription for you. If the nurse cannot reach you and call in the prescription, another nurse (Sexually Transmitted Infection nurse) will have to contact you, likely through a letter in the mail. If the pap exam indicates and abnormal result a nurse from the clinc will call to inform you.
