How to take a smear from men
In men, a smear is taken from the urethra by bacteriological examination of inflammatory processes in the microflora of the urinary canal. The procedure is painless and the material is taken by a urologist. A man needs to prepare himself for the procedure, for this:
- 6–7 days prior to analysis, the use of antibiotics or other potent drugs should be stopped;
- 24 hours before taking a smear, exclude alcohol and any products with its content;
- Exclude sex 12 hours before the procedure;
- Do not go to the toilet for a couple of hours before analysis.
The procedure can only cause pain in case of damage to the urethra, in the presence of infection or inflammation. The urologist gently inserts a sterile cotton swab into the urethra of a man 2-4 cm in depth, carefully rotating, takes it out.
This refers to examination for the presence of inflammatory processes or infections.When smears are taken from a couple of spouses (sexual partners), the test results can be both the same and different. This is not an indicator, since a man and a woman are different organisms with individual indicators of immunity. So, microorganisms in a woman's vagina can behave completely differently than in a man's urethra. Therefore, the clinical picture in each case is considered purely individual and the recommendations for treatment are also different.
