If your Canesten Vaginal pH Self Test swab didn’t change colour after 10 seconds, and you have symptoms such as (white) thick, cottage cheese like discharge, none or a non-offensive odour, intense vaginal (or vulvar) itching or burning and no painful urination then it means that you may be suffering from thrush.
If the results indicate thrush, you may consider using a Canesten® Thrush Treatment product. Canesten offers a range of convenient thrush treatments that are available over the counter at your local pharmacy. Simply show or discuss the results of this test and request a Canesten treatment from your pharmacists to treat the condition.
If the tip of the swab did not change colour after 10 seconds and you do not have the symptoms of vaginal thrush indicated in the symptoms table, then it is likely that you are not suffering from a common vaginal infection.
If your Canesten Vaginal pH Self Test swab changed colour to Green/Blue, and you are suffering from symptoms such as a thin milky, white or grey discharge, fishy or unpleasant odour, intermittent vaginal (or vulvar) itching and burning and no painful urination then you likely have a bacterial infection such as bacterial vaginosis (BV). Consult your doctor for treatment advice.
If Canesten Vaginal pH Self Test swab changed colour and the tip becomes Green/Blue and you are experiencing symptoms such as bubbly, yellow-green sticky discharge, musty or unpleasant odour, intense vaginal (or vulvar) itching or burning and painful urination then you will need to show or discuss the results of this test with your doctor.
Note: Any partial green or blue stain on the yellow indicator swab tip should be considered as a colour change.
