  • No they dont, they just put your legs in the holder and run the swab from the outside of your vagina down to your anus, they dont go inside of either hole LOL, it is very quick. It is usually in the area between the vagina and anus so that is why they swab from one to the other.

  • it takes about 30 secons, and its just a quick swab from the opening of your vag, and a little rub on the butthole.
    no big, doenst hurt, and is done in SECONDS-
    however my doctor DID take advantage of it at this last apt and check to see if I was progressing any, and did my little man throw a BITCH fit from hell.
    He doesnt like ppl in his living quarters.
