Can semen show up as an infection in vaginal swab?
Patient :I had a pap test and my doctor called telling me I have an infection. I have no symptoms. I had had sex about 20 hours before my test, is it possible the semen in my vagina changed the test results? Or do I definitely have an infection? Thanks!
