Vaginal infection test kit for bacterial vaginosis (BV)

The normal vaginal bacteria levels of Lactobacillus help to provide natural protection against infection by keeping the pH of the vagina slightly acidic between pH 3.8 and 4.5.

Disruption of the natural balance of bacteria inside the vagina may lead to infections such as bacterial vaginosis (BV) which can pose a threat to your health or to your baby if you are pregnant.

These microbial imbalances usually cause an increase in pH (more alkaline) to higher than pH4.5 which can not only affect your quality of life but also pose a serious risk to your health and increase the risk of premature birth.

Around 1 in 3 patients attending gynaecological departments suffer from vaginal infections. The most common signs and symptoms being increased discharge, fishy odour, itching, burning and vaginal dryness. Very often these symptoms are confused with thrush and treated inappropriately with anti fungal creams, pessaries and tablets.

As many as 1 in 5 pregnant women are diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis which increases the risk of premature rupture of membranes (PROM).

A simple home test kit designed specifically for measuring vaginal pH is a quick and reliable way to identify the risk of microbial imbalances that could lead to bacterial vaginosis. Our test offers excellent value for money with two tests in each pack.

How often should you use the test?

How often you should use the test depends on whether you are pregnant or not.

If you are pregnant

If you are having a baby we recommend using our test twice a week (one pack contains 2 tests) to make sure the vaginal pH is within normal range and also between antenatal appointments. However, you may wish to perform the test more often particularly if you have suffered from vaginal infections during previous pregnancies or if you have already had experience of a premature birth.

For women who are not pregnant

It is most effective to use the test if you think that your symptoms could be confused with thrush. A positive result with this test could save you a delayed diagnosis and possible inappropriate treatment with anti fungal preparations.

Determining your vaginal pH with our self test kit is simple, quick, hygienic and completely painless. Full instructions are provided with the test.
