How to Do A Self-test of Yeast Infections?

Q:
How to do a self-test of yeast infections?

A:
You can have a pH test at home.

Generally speaking, pH of vagina is around 4. If the test result is below 4, it is likely a yeast infection.

Buy pH test papers first. Hold a piece of test paper against the wall of your vagina. Wait for a few seconds. After that, compare the color of the paper to the pH chart.

In addition, if the result is above 4, you also need to see your doctor. It may be a sign of another infection.

Anyway, seeing a doctor and having professional tests is still the most reliable way to diagnose a yeast infection.
