Care Diagnostica Viola Vaginal pH Test Kit 2 in pack x 2 Packs (4 Tests in Total)
Maintain vaginal health during pregnancy and decrease the risk of premature birth
The most common cause of premature birth is bacterial infection in the vagina, regular testing of the pH balance can alert expectant mother's to the possibility of this infection, which can largely go unnoticed. The viola pH test system was developed so that disturbances in vaginal acidity could easily be detected and therefore the presence of infection, alerting the expectant mother to seek medical help and reduce the risk of premature birth. Through regular self testing of the vaginal pH value expectant mothers can reduce the risk.
Detecting other common problems
By measuring the pH value in the vaginal opening other disturbances of the vaginal balance can easily be detected. Vaginal infections can cause a range of symptoms including, itching, burning, dryness, increased discharge, fishy odour etc. Using the self test sticks means that early stage infections can be identified and therefore treated quickly meaning less suffering and discomfort.
Performing the test
Always wash your hands before handling the pH tests. Insert the vaginal applicator gently into the vagina, in the same way you would use a tampon (approximately 1 - 3 cm into the vagina but not further than to the round handle area). Press the inserted vaginal applicator against the back wall of the vagina with light pressure for approximately 10 seconds, so that the pH measurement zone is well moistened. Sufficient moisture is very important for the test evaluation.
