Vaginal candidiasis, or “yeast,” is one of the most common causes of vaginitis in women. It is caused by a type of fungus called Candida. Yeast infections can become more severe if they are not diagnosed and treated. The myLAB Box Yeast Home Test uses modern genetic technology that tests for more strains of yeast than other panels. This means you can be assured of getting highly accurate results.
Symptoms of yeast infection can include:
- A thick, white vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese but has no odor
- Itching, burning, and/or redness and swelling in and around the vagina
- Pain during sex
- Discomfort when urinating
Since the symptoms of a yeast infection are similar to those of BV and other sexually-transmitted infections (STIs), it may ease your worries to get tested and know for sure if you have a yeast infection. The myLAB Box Yeast Home Test uses DNA technology to test for several types of yeast that cause fungal infections in the vagina. At-home test kits that screen only for basic strains of yeast may be more likely to give false negative or less accurate results.
About Yeast Infections
Vaginal candidiasis, or “yeast” is a fungal infection that occurs when too much Candida yeast grows in the vagina. The overgrowth of yeast can cause itching and other irritating symptoms that get worse the longer you have the infection.
Women of all ages get yeast infections. Many are not sexually active. In fact, vaginal yeast infections are so common that 3 out of 4 women have at least one in their lifetime and almost half of women will have 2 or more. The myLAB Box Yeast Home Test makes it easy and convenient to know for sure if you have a vaginal yeast infection.
Yeast infections are not STIs but it is possible to pass a yeast infection to your partner during sex. It is important for your partner to get tested and treated if there is any sign of a yeast infection.
While pregnancy, diabetes, or HIV infection may increase your risk of getting a yeast infection, there are many things that can upset the natural balance of yeast in the vagina and trigger an infection. These include taking antibiotics or birth control pills, douching, or even wearing tight pants. Getting tested and treated if you have a yeast infection is one of the best ways to help keep your vagina healthy.
