- Pregnant women with STDs
- The test may be done for patients with suspected signs of Sexually transmitted infections.
- Patients with significant contact with patients suffering from STDs should also be investigated.
- If during pregnancy it is proven that there has been exposure of foetus to these infections, then the test should be performed to confirm the same.
- It may be done in certain immunocompromised patients with recent history of unprotected sexual contact, shared needle usage or history of blood transfusions.
This test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer. Urine sample to be collected in a sterile container. For HPV test, tissue sample is to be collected with a sterilised swab.
