In a study of 95 women who presented with vaginal yeast infection symptoms, more than 66% of women who self-diagnosed a vaginal yeast infection were wrong. Although some vaginal infections may display similar symptoms, when it comes time to correctly treating the infection and getting fast relief, it is important to distinguish between a vaginal yeast infection and a bacterial/parasitic infection.
VagiSense® is a non‑prescription home screening test that helps determine whether your symptoms are more likely the result of a yeast infection or caused by a bacterial or parasitic infection.
