NuSwab: In the past we use to try to culture vaginal infections. The results were not very accurate. Now we have DNA and RNA testing which is highly specific and sensitive. NuSwab is one of those tests which looks for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Bacterial Vaginosis, Trichomonas Vaginalis and Yeast.

STD Screens: don't usually include Trichomoniasis, so it needs to be specifically requested.
