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.
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.
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.
