Getting the test.

You’re definitely going to pee in a cup. Some doctors take a blood sample to test, which is really common. Remember to breathe when they take blood! If you don’t, you might pass out like I do. There will be a pelvic exam including a PAP smear to test for abnormal cells in your cervix (that’s how they detect HPV) and that swab will likely be used to test for other STDs.

It’s really not that bad, I promise.
