Our self-test for vaginal pH is a urine test that measures vaginal pH value. An elevated pH value is often associated with bacterial vaginosis.

An imbalance in the vaginal pH value can lead to yeast infections, also known as bacterial vaginosis. Untreated bacterial vaginosis can lead to complications. Vaginal pH testing for the genital area is used to detect early imbalances in the vaginal bacterial flora that may contribute to genital discomfort. It can be used when there is suspicion of bacterial vaginosis, unpleasant odour, or general irritation.

Vaginal pH Test

Product Description

Discover imbalance in vaginal flora with a vaginal pH test

A high pH value (acidity level in the genital area) is a very common, and often recurring, problem for women of all ages. Usually, it becomes noticeable when problems such as itching, irritation, or bad odour occur. The vaginal pH value is crucial for a healthy genital area without discomfort or infections. If the balance is disrupted, it can lead to the growth of unwanted bacteria, causing bacterial vaginosis.

Identification of abnormal acidity levels in vaginal discharge can be due to an infection that sometimes requires medical attention. With the Quicktest vaginal pH test, you can easily and discreetly measure your vaginal pH value at home. The test helps to monitor the vaginal pH value and detect any imbalances that may contribute to genital discomfort. You will receive the result in just a few minutes.

Genital pH Value & Common Symptoms of Imbalance

Common symptoms of an imbalance in vaginal pH value are increased discharge that emits a bad, often fish-like, odour from the genital area. The discharge can be transparent, grey, white, or greenish. Burning in the vaginal opening can also occur. Symptoms may increase after sexual intercourse and menstruation when pH increases.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the test measure the pH level in the vagina?

The Quicktest vaginal pH test is used to determine the pH levels obtained by using a vaginal swab. When the swab with the sample from the vagina comes into contact with the pH test, a colour change occurs. Different pH levels are indicated by different shades and hues on the colour scale. The colour that appears on the pH test is then compared to the colour scale that comes with the testing device. The result is visually equivalent to the numerical value of the colour on the colour scale that best matches the colour on the pH test.

Can the test be used at any time?

No. Certain limitations apply because some conditions can temporarily change the pH level in the vagina. Circumstances such as menstruation, sexual intercourse, and the use of vaginal medical products can temporarily change the pH level in the vagina and lead to inaccurate results.

Does a positive result mean I have bacterial vaginosis?

Not necessarily. Some women in menopause experience an elevated pH level in the vagina, which can result in a positive test even if you do not have bacterial or parasitic infection. Do not start any treatment without consulting a doctor.

What is the difference between bacterial vaginosis and yeast infection?

Bacterial vaginosis is caused by an imbalance in the vaginal bacterial flora, while a yeast infection is caused by the growth of yeast in the genital area. The symptoms and discomfort can be similar and often manifest as foul-smelling discharge and itching. However, they require different treatments.

What factors can lead to inaccurate test results?

The test results are affected by several factors such as incorrect sample collection, the swab not being moist enough, or the use of various local medications.

Can bacterial vaginosis recur?

It is common for those who suffer from bacterial vaginosis to experience recurring symptoms even after treatment. Many experience symptoms under circumstances where the environment in the vagina is less acidic, especially after menstruation and after sexual intercourse. Stress and antibiotic treatment can also cause an imbalance in the vaginal pH value. Similarly, the balance of bacteria in the vagina can be disrupted and make it easier to develop bacterial vaginosis if you wash too much in the genital area. If you want to use soap, choose one with a low pH value.

The Doctor Says...

A balanced bacterial flora is crucial for the vagina to "feel good". Imbalances can manifest in various forms, but a simple pH test can indicate that something is not right. Fortunately, there are over-the-counter medications that can effectively alleviate or completely eliminate this imbalance.
