Thrush & Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) Rapid Test Device Kits

One Step Thrush & Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) pH Rapid Test Device 3 Kits Self Testing

  • VAGINAL pH LEVEL: The normal vaginal pH level is slightly acidic, typically ranging from around 3.8 to 4.5. This acidic environment helps maintain a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria (lactobacilli) and prevents the overgrowth of harmful microorganisms
  • THRUSH (VAGINAL CANDIDIASIS): In cases of vaginal thrush, there is an overgrowth of Candida fungus. This can lead to a decrease in the vaginal pH level, making it more alkaline or less acidic than usual
  • BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS (BV): Bacterial vaginosis is characterized by an overgrowth of certain types of bacteria, disrupting the normal balance of vaginal flora. This condition can lead to an increase in the vaginal pH level, making it less acidic and more alkaline
  • DIAGNOSTIC TEST: The test aims to detect changes in the vaginal pH level that are indicative of thrush or bacterial vaginosis. The test involves a swab that changes colour based on the pH of the vaginal secretions. By measuring the colour change, you can determine whether the pH level is within the normal range or has shifted towards alkalinity or acidity
  • INTERPRETATION: Depending on the test results, you can assess whether a woman it is likely you have thrush, bacterial vaginosis, or neither. If the pH level is elevated (more alkaline), it may suggest bacterial vaginosis, while a decrease in pH level might indicate vaginal thrush
