Canestest® Self-Test for Vaginal Infections

Canestest® Self-Test for Vaginal Infections

Dealing with vaginal infections can make you feel less confident and less in control of your body, not to mention very uncomfortable. Canestest® allows you to test yourself in the comfort of your home, quickly giving you reliable results that are over 90% accurate. 

It’s a solution that will put you back in control of your intimate health and give you the ability to choose the treatment you need to effectively deal with your infection and get back to you.

Is it thrush or BV?

While both thrush and bacterial vaginosis (BV) are very common, they’re two different types of infections and as such require different treatments. However, they are not always easy for women to identify.

With Canestest®, you can test before you treat, so you know you're choosing the right solution that will bring you effective relief from your infection.


Thrush is a fungal infection caused by an overgrowth of the yeast (Candida albicans) which often leads to symptoms such as vaginal itching, soreness or a cottage-cheese like white vaginal discharge.

Bacterial Vaginosis

BV is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria naturally found in your vagina. BV symptoms usually include a fishy odour and a greyish-white, watery discharge.

How to use?

Wash your hands thoroughly before and after using

It’s similar to inserting a tampon and it shouldn’t cause you any discomfort.
