You only have to put it in so the tip of the swab is in, like, a quarter of an inch or less. It doesn't have to go waaaaay up there (thankfully).

It's not bad at all, I just don't care to have my butt touched.

OMG Mine always hurts! Maybe I'm not as, uh, "groomed" as I could be right there, but even then...and I don't have hemorrhoids. Sheesh. Really, mine still hurts. Maybe it's just extra sensitive in pregnancy for me?

We won't discuss the cervical checks with the separating pelvis over here.

I imagine it's like the GD test: every doc and midwife does it a little differently. All my providers have done both. Suuuuper pleasant. Haha!

I've always had both holes swabed. It really is quick though.

I didn't feel it either...I was also a little lost in translation I had no clue my doctor had to go in the other hole until after I had my appt and heard from all you ladies here in JM that they have to go in the backdoor. I was really shocked that I didn't notice.

I have only had my vagina and it's never hurt. I think it's uncomfortable but its really fast. While the test isn't bad, I always start cramping really bad afterwards which sucks. I was suppose to have it done next week but had to go in for something else on Friday so they went ahead and did the test then, haven't heard anything back about it yet though.

I had my test over a week ago, and I know they have to send it to a lab but they said if it was positive they would call and send me a script for antibiotics, so far no call and my next appt is on tuesday woohoo!!!!

With my daughter they just very lightly touched the area in between with the swab and that was it! This time was a whole different story They stuck it right in both! Eep! They said "so I guess you remember what this is about from your last pregnancy so we'll just go ahead" I think it depends on the Dr doing it because this wasn't what happened last time.

I had mine today and it was in both, but very quick and painless.
