The dr. takes a big q-tip, and swabs your v____a and then another and swabs your bottom. That's all there is to it. Doesn't hurt at all.

mine was done at about 36 weeks, I think. It is pretty tame - they just take a long q-tip like swab and swab the outside of your v____a and rectum. No poking in, no speculum, no needles. Pretty quick and painless.

I had mine at 35 weeks. No speculum, just the swab. Didn't feel a thing.
