Canestest is a self- test for women to help you decide the best course of treatment.
Step 1: Unwrap the Canestest® swab (make sure the swab tip does not come into contact with anything before you insert it into your vagina).
Step 2: Hold the Canestest® swab by the handle and insert the yellow tip into your vagina, rotate the swab and then remove.
Step 3: 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.
The test results should be interpreted in conjunction with your symptoms, based on the symptoms table on the back of the pack, helping you to understand which common vaginal infection you may be suffering from, such as thrush or bacterial vaginosis.
