LetsGetChecked - Vaginitis (BV, CV, TV) Swab Test Kit
The LetsGetChecked - Vaginitis (BV, CV, TV) Swab Test Kit includes Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), Candida Vaginitis (CV), and Trichomonas Vaginitis (TV).
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
The cause of BV is unknown, but it is linked to an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the vagina. BV will sometimes go away without treatment but if you have symptoms and a positive BV test result, treatment will be required.
Candida Vaginitis (CV)
Candida is a yeast that can cause an infection inside the vagina known as candida vaginitis or vaginal candidiasis. This is more commonly known as a yeast infection. In the United States, it is the second most common type of vaginal infection.
Trichomonas Vaginitis (TV)
TV or trichomoniasis is a very common STD among women. About 70% of people will not have symptoms and if left untreated, it can remain for months or even years. It is not possible to diagnose trichomoniasis based on symptoms alone, so testing is important.
We understand the symptoms of vaginitis can often cause discomfort, frustration, and even stress. However, vaginitis is so common that the majority of women will experience at least one episode in their lifetime. In fact, 88% of females experienced vaginal symptoms in the past year*. Symptoms can vary depending on the cause.
Symptoms of vaginitis can include:
- A change in vaginal discharge.
- Pain, itching, or burning in the vagina.
- A strong fish-like odor, especially after sex.
- Discomfort with urination.
- Itching around the outside of the vagina.
- Pain during sex.
- Light vaginal bleeding or spotting.
Talk to your healthcare provider about any symptoms or concerns. For positive candida and BV test results, treatment will not be provided in the absence of vaginal symptoms.
Vaginitis is an inflammation or infection of the vaginal area. If you suspect you may have vaginitis, you're not alone. In fact, an estimated 1 in 3 American women will get BV in their lifetime. You should consider getting tested if you are a female over the age of 18 and have symptoms of vaginitis.
Your risk of vaginitis can increase if:
- You have a new sex partner or multiple sex partners.
- You use hormonal contraceptives (for example, birth control pills).
- You have diabetes.
- You are taking or have recently taken antibiotics.
This test only detects candida vaginitis, trichomoniasis, and bacterial vaginosis. There is up to a 4 week window period from the time of exposure for trichomoniasis to become detectable. If you think you tested too early or you are concerned you may have been exposed to the disease, repeat testing may be required.
