Preparation for the study

General

  • The material should be taken before the first dose of antibiotic.
  • The culture is performed for aerobic bacteria.
  • Depending on the location from which the sample is to be taken, the material for testing can be taken by a doctor/midwife in a gynecologist's office
    - in which case an appointment is required for the test.

Important

An antibiogram is also performed as part of the culture. If the bacteria constitute a natural bacterial flora, not forming the basis for an antibiogram,
then it is not performed.
An antibiogram is performed when we obtain an increase in pathogenic bacteria (responsible for the infection)-where the inflammatory process is taking place.
If further microbiological diagnosis is required, the time for issuing the result may be prolonged.
