: I am going to be having a post-coital test soon. Can anyone tell me what to expect, and do you know exactly what they look at? (mucus and sperm being able to get throught it) Thanks

Pam,
If I know the test you are talking about some doctor's refer to it as the Morning After next.
Its where you and your partner fool around at night, the next morning first thing you go to
the doctor. The doctor extracts the fluid remaining in the woman (painless, just like a pap smear).
Then he looks at the fluid under a microscope. If white blood cells are present then the chances
of a bacterial infection are high in either of you or both. The doctor will prescribe antibiotics and continue
the testing until everything is clear. The antibiotics are very expensive but most insurance co.
will cover them. It may take a few times to work so don't get discourages.

Good Luck,
Natalie
