Thrush vs. Bacterial Vaginosis

While both thrush and bacterial vaginosis (BV) are very common, they’re two different types of infections and you need to treat them differently. However, they are not always known and not always easy to identify. Thrush is caused by an overgrowth of the yeast (Candida albicans) which often leads to symptoms such as itchiness, soreness or a white discharge. BV is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria regularly found in your vagina.  BV symptoms usually include a fishy odour and a greyish-white, watery discharge.

With Canestest, you can test before you treat so you know you’re using the right treatment for your infection.

Cystitis is the medical name given to an inflammation of the bladder that affects up to 40% of women. The feeling that you need to urinate more often and suffering from uncomfortable or even painful urination are two of the main symptoms that indicate you may be suffering from cystitis.
