“Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is an insidious infection that affects a large proportion of women of all ages, and 5 to 8% of infected women experience recurrent VVC (RVVC).” (Zhou et al., 2009). http://iai.asm.org/content/77/9/4130.full Symptoms of pruritus vulvae are vulvar pain, vaginal discharge, acute itching, rash on the outer lips of the vagina, genital burning that increases with urination. An unpleasant-smelling or purulent discharge indicates a bacterial infection; dyspareunia (superficial); dysuria (external).

Packing : the package contains all the necessary elements needed for the test: test cartridge, bag with desiccant, swab and detailed instructions for use. The test results can be read after 5-10 minutes.

Step-by-step guide for self-testing:

  1. Remove the device from the sealed pouch and place it on a flat horizontal surface.
  2. Hold the device firmly with one hand. With the other hand, carefully remove the aluminum cover of the purple cup. Be careful! The purple cup contains liquid.
  3. Remove the swab from the cover.
  4. Insert the swab 2 cm into the vagina and rotate it for 20 seconds. Pull out the swab carefully!
  5. Rotate the swab into the liquid in the violet cup for 20 seconds.

Read the results after 10 minutes. A blue line should appear on the control (C) mark. In case of positive results, an additional blue line of the test (T) mark should appear. In case of a negative or unclear result, read again after 10 minutes. Do not read the results after a period longer than 20 minutes as otherwise false positive results may be shown.
