Vaginal Wet Mount
How To Prepare
Do not douche, use tampons, or use vaginal medicines for 24 hours before the test.
A vaginal wet mount is not done during your menstrual period. Menstrual blood on the slide can change the results.
If you are or might be pregnant, tell your doctor before the vaginal wet mount is done.
