Your provider will use a thin cotton swab to collect cells from the vaginal wall, then smear the cells on a microscope slide and mix them with a solution the provider will view the slide under a microscope. Your provider will know what type of vaginitis you have, based on what is seen on the slide.
Before the test, don’t have sex, douche, or use tampons. If you’re on your period, wait until it’s over to have a vaginal wet mount. Blood can make it hard to get clean test results.
