Essential information about the Trichomonas v., Candida a. and Gardnerella v. STD home test
This STD home test is a certified diagnostic medical device for self-testing genital infection with pathogens causing trich, thrush and bacterial vaginosis.
This innovative STD home test enables you completely anonymous testing.
Frequently asked questions about testing for trich, thrush and bv at home
Yes, sure they can, because the sample type is urine. There is no need to swab the genitals.
Genital yeast infection is also known as candidiasis, a condition caused by the yeast Candida albicans.
Yes, you can read the result for each pathogen separately.
One testing device incorporates three separate tests, one for each pathogen (3-in-1 test).
You should not use the test if there is blood in your urine, because blood can cause muddy results.
Blood in the urine can be due to some injury, severe urinary tract infection or with women due to the monthly period.
Yes, delivery is discreet. We do not label the shipping box with any information about its content.
Time to get tested for Trichomonas, Candida or Gardnerella
If you experience itching, foul smell, soreness, burning sensation in genitals, you probably have genital infection with one of the widespread pathogens.
Trichomonas vaginalis causes trichomoniasis (trich), the most common non-viral sexually transmitted disease in the world.1
A yeast Candida albicans causes candidiasis (thrush), a common yeast infection in men and women.2
Bacteria Gardnerella vaginalis has a primary role in the development of bacterial vaginosis (bv).3
Knowing the cause of genital infection is very helpful for choosing the appropriate treatment (for example remedies against yeast infection are not effective against bacterial infection and vice versa).

Accuracy and reliability of the STD 3-in-1 home test
In a clinical performance evaluation study, the test showed the correct result in 95.5% – 100% of cases.
We want to stress also that the test is very reliable. So far, it has been used by thousands worldwide, and there was no significant error.
The test is manufactured according to ISO13485 and compliant with the European directive 98/79/EC on the in vitro diagnostic medical devices and CE certified for home use by the Notified Body 0123.
Wouldn’t be better to know the cause of genital infection?
3-step testing procedure
Testing is simple and comfortable. You carry out the analysis in three steps:
- Collect a urine sample.
- Mix the urine sample with a buffer.
- Apply the mixture to the testing device.
Then you need to wait 15 minutes for the result.
How to interpret the result?
The result is interpreted visually as positive, negative or invalid.
The result is visible separately for Trichomonas, Candida and Gardnerella.
- There are pathogens in your urine. It might be the case of more severe genital infection.
- Do not panic. Infection with each of the tested pathogens is treatable.
- Consult with your doctor about further steps.
Negative: There are no pathogens in your urine, therefore probably some other pathogen is causing you symptoms. We recommend you to consult with your doctor.
