Canestest Self Test for Vaginal Infections

Product code: 3950854
£9.10
(incl VAT)
Dealing with vaginal infections can make you feel less confident and less in control of your body, not to mention very uncomfortable. Canestest allows you to independently diagnose yourself in the comfort of your home, quickly giving you results that are over 90% accurate. It's a new and innovative solution, that will put you back in control of your intimate health and give you the ability to choose the treatment you need to effectively deal with your infection.

While both Thrush and Vaginosis (BV) are very common, they are two different types of infections and you need to treat them differently. However, they are not always known and not always easy to identify.

Thrush
Is caused by an overgrowth of the yeast (Candida Albicans) which often leads to symptoms such as itchiness, soreness or a white discharge.

BV
Is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria regularly found in your vagina. BV symptoms usually include a fishy odour and a greyish-white, watery discharge. With Canestest, you can test before you treat so you know you're using the right treatment for your infection.
  • Self diagnose in the comfort of your own home.
  • Simple and easy to use.
  • Results in 10 seconds.
  • With 90% accuracy.
Directions for Use:
Read leaflet before use.
Unwrap the Canestest swab.
Hold the Canestest swab by the handle and insert the yellow tip into your vagina, rotate the swab and then remove.
After 10 seconds check the tip of the Canestest swab to see if the colour has stayed the same or changed to blue or green.

How to interpret the test results?
If your Canestest swab didn't change colour after 10 seconds, it means that you may be suffering from thrush. If you have symptoms such as an itchy or sore vagina, or thick, white discharge, it's likely that this is the case.

If your Canestest swab changed colour and the tip becomes blue or green, it means that you may have a BV infection. BV infections are usually accompanied by symptoms such as a thin, grey discharge and an unpleasant fishy smell.
