What is it
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 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.
Canestest is a convenient self-test that helps you to find out whether you’re likely to suffer from thrush or BV and also guides you to choose the right treatment.. This technological breakthrough allows you to regain control of your intimate health – it’s over 90% accurate and it only takes 10 seconds to receive your diagnosis.
Unwrap the Canestest swab (make sure the swab tip does not come into contact with anything before you insert it into your vagina)
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.
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.
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
