ADVICE | Will They Stick Things Down My Pee Hole?

This week a reader is considering going to his first sexual health check up and is concerned they’ll put something down his urethra.

Will They Stick Things Down My Pee Hole?

Dear Team

I’m thinking about going for a check up but I’m worried about things being stuck down my dick, I’ve heard that sometimes you use like an umbrella type device to check for infections… Is that right?

Dear John,
Thanks for your question. The good news is that you won’t find the umbrella swab in a sexual health clinic…
If you have no symptoms it’s just a urine test (throat and rectal swabs also for gay men). If you have symptoms we may need to take a tiny swab for the urethra.

This isn’t painful just uncomfortable. But if you’ve got no symptoms then we just need a sample of pee.
The staff are super friendly too so if there is anything you don’t want or are worried about just say.
