Relevant selected examples of paired results obtained by gold standard clinician-collected endocervical swab and self-collected veil using the multiplex real-time PCR Allplex™ STI Essential Assay (Seegene). Participants #021, #036, and #233 gave similar profiles of bacteria detection by paired clinician-collected swab and self-collected veil. Participants #058 and #152 showed more detection by swab than by veil. Finally, participants #009, #041, #090, #126, #172, #173, #177, and #231 showed better bacteria detection by self-collected veil than clinician-collected swab. Positive result for a given bacteria is indicated by cross whereas negative result by white box. All swab and veil specimens were positive for β-globin internal control of the PCR Allplex™ STI Essential Assay (not shown). Group I corresponds to common curable sexually transmitted infections (Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium, and Trichomonas vaginalis) and group II to commensal mycoplasmas (Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma urealyticum, and Ureaplasma parvum).
