Collect a vaginal swab and place in normal microbiology transport media. Store at room temperature. Urine specimens from females are not acceptable.
Collect 10 - 20 mL of a first catch urine specimen. Alternatively, collect a urethral swab, store and transport as above. A urine sample is preferable as this allows quantitation and significance to be determined more accurately.
