How to use
  • Before you begin, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly.
  • Remove the Canestest self-test from its packaging.
  • Carefully unscrew the cap from the handle end of the swab, taking care not to touch the tip with your hands or any other objects.
  • While sitting or standing in a comfortable position, gently insert the yellow-tip end of the swab into the vagina, similar to using a tampon.
  • Swirl the swab around in the vagina for 10-30 seconds, ensuring that it comes into contact with the walls of the vagina so it can absorb the discharge.
  • Carefully remove the swab from the vagina. Immediately insert the swab into the tube, and then screw the cap onto the tube.
  • After 10 seconds, compare the color of the control swab (the color chart on the test kit package) to determine your result. If it turns blue or green, this indicates a bacterial or trichomonas infection. If it stays yellow, this indicates an infection like thrush.
  • Dispose of the test securely. If diagnostic results were positive, consult your doctor for treatment options.
  • Remember, this test is not a substitute for a professional medical diagnosis. Always consult with a healthcare professional if you're unsure about your symptoms or if they persist.
Main Ingredients
  • The Canestest Self-Test for Vaginal Infections is a medical device, not a drug or food, so it doesn't contain typical "ingredients." However, it includes a pH swab test, a test swab handle and a pH color chart to compare results.
