What did I need to do to take the test?
– 2 long cotton swabs
– 2 sterile tubes
– 1 help booklet
– 1 self-sealing free post envelope
– 1 text order form with 2 reference number.
Swab 2 – Rectal SwabI took the second swab packet and peeled it open and took the swab out, making sure I did not touch cotton end of the swab with my fingers. I held it 1-2cm from the cotton swab, which once again is shown in the booklet provided, I inserted it carefully into my anus and leaving it in for 3-5 seconds then carefully removed.
After taken the swab out, I slid it into the collection tube which was the same as the other and contains a transport gel and pushed the cap firmly down to ensure the collection tube was securely sealed.
Finally I carefully peel off the Reference Number self-adhesive label from the top of the Test Order Form and add it to my collection tube.
Complete Order Form
Once both test swabs were packaged it into the Freepost return envelope I began to complete the form that came with this pack. This form was very easy to fill out making sure I used blocked capital letters. I needed to add my address, babies due date, my date of birth. There was also an option of how you would like to receive your Strepelle results. You can have by text, email or post. I opted to receive mine via text as this was the best option for me.
Doing this test was pretty easy to do, even being heavily pregnant. For all the idea of doing this test seemed daunting for me personally at first, I found it was not overly uncomfortable to do both tests, it only took a few minutes of my time and now that I am more aware of GBS I see this test very important for any expectant mother. Any female could be the 1 in 4 that is carrying the bacteria that could potentially harm their baby so I would recommend Strepelle Group B Strep Test to any expectant mother.
Incase you were wondering, my results came back and I am all clear and no fur. Just time for Baby Nemo to arrive.
