Canesten Vaginal pH Self Test
Canesten® Vaginal pH Self Test is a self-diagnosis test to assist women who are experiencing unusual vaginal symptoms and want help to diagnose common infections like thrush. It is an innovative self test to help you quickly determine in the privacy of your home, if you may be suffering from common vaginal infections, such as thrush, thereby enabling you to request the right treatment or consult with the doctor if needed.
Canesten Vaginal pH Self Test links vaginal pH and symptoms to a probable condition: first, the easy-to-use swab helps you to find out whether or not your vaginal pH level is elevated. Then, this result should be interpreted in conjunction with the symptoms table on the pack, helping you to request the right treatment or consult with a doctor if needed.

Precautions and considerations
Do not take any decision of medical relevance without first consulting your medical practitioner. Also, if you're unsure about the right treatment or confused about the result, please consult your doctor. Remember, Canestest won’t be able to give you an accurate diagnosis in any of these situations:
It’s less than one day before or after your period
There are signs that your period has arrived or you have any signs of vaginal bleeding
It’s been less than 12 hours since you’ve had sexual intercourse or used a vaginal douche
If you are pregnant, consult your physician, as interpreting test results during pregnancy and choosing a medication requires professional knowledge.
Some menopausal women may have an elevated vaginal pH, and may therefore receive a green/blue result with the swab even though they are not suffering from Bacterial Vaginosis or Trichomoniasis. As such, you should not use this test if you are menopausal.
