Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a very common and highly unpleasant and painful condition in women of all ages. It is estimated that 50-60% of women will experience a urinary tract infection at some point in their lives. It is also common for women who have had a urinary tract infection in the past to have recurrent infections. Symptoms can vary widely, from a burning sensation when urinating to a constant urge to urinate. In more severe cases, you may also experience back pain, fever and flu-like symptoms. Women are more often affected by urinary tract infections because their shorter ureters make it easier for bacteria to enter and cause infection.
The VagiVital Urinary Tract Infection Self Test is intended for those who want to check the presence of leukocytes, blood, nitrites or proteins in the urine, which may indicate an ongoing infection. The test is particularly useful for symptoms such as frequent urination, a burning sensation when urinating or if the urine is cloudy and/or smells bad. For best results, use the first urine of the morning.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common infections and affect the urinary tract, including the bladder and ureters. Symptoms vary but often include a burning sensation when urinating, a constant feeling of having to urinate, and in more severe cases, back pain, fever and flu-like symptoms. Women are more often affected because of their shorter ureters, which make it easier for bacteria to reach the bladder. Menopause can increase the risk of urinary tract infections due to hormonal changes that affect the urinary tract. Decreased estrogen production during menopause can weaken the urinary tract's defenses against infection by reducing protective lactobacilli and causing drier, more fragile mucous membranes in the urinary tract that contribute to increased risk of infection. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and the menstrual cycle can also make some women more susceptible to UTIs.

Question: How do I know that the test was carried out correctly?
Answer: To prove that the test has been performed correctly, a colored line should appear in the control area (C) of the test unit. This line shows that the test has been carried out correctly. If there is no colored line, it is recommended that you repeat the test with a new device and a new sample.
Question: What should I do if my test result is positive?
Answer: Remember that a positive result does not mean that all four substances have been detected in your urine. Even if your result is positive for only one of the substances, it is likely that something is wrong with your urine, even though the cause may not be a urinary tract infection. Contact your doctor as soon as possible, who can provide a more accurate diagnosis. When you visit your doctor, take the instructions for use and test with you so that it is clear what type of test you have performed.
Question: What should I do if my test result is negative?
Answer: Remember that your test result is only negative if the result for all four substances on the test field is negative. However, if you still feel signs of a urinary tract infection or have any other symptoms, you should contact your doctor to arrange a more thorough examination.
Question: What is the accuracy of the VagiVital Urinary Tract Infection Self Test?
Answer: The study shows an accuracy of 97.6% for leukocytes, 96% for blood, 100% for nitrites and 88% for proteins.
Question: What does it mean that I have a positive result for leukocytes in my urine?
Answer: The presence of leukocytes (white blood cells) in the urine can indicate an inflammation or infection of the urinary tract. Leukocytes are part of the body's immune system and when they are present in the urine, it can be a sign that the body is fighting an infection. If you have leukocytes in your urine and experience symptoms such as pain when urinating, fever or back pain, you should consult a doctor.
Question: What does it mean if I have a positive result for blood in my urine?
Answer: A positive result for blood in the urine can indicate various conditions, one of which may be a urinary tract infection. If you have a positive test result for blood in your urine, it is important that you contact a doctor for further investigation and diagnosis.
Question: What does it mean that I have a positive result for nitrites in my urine?
Answer: A positive result for nitrites in the urine can be a sign of a urinary tract infection (UTI). When nitrites are detected in the urine using a test strip, it indicates that there may be bacteria in the urinary tract that produce nitrites as part of their metabolism. If you have a positive result for nitrites and experience symptoms suggestive of a urinary tract infection, you should contact your doctor for further evaluation and treatment.
Question: What does it mean that I have a positive result for proteins in my urine?
Answer: A positive result for proteins in urine means that proteins have been detected in your urine sample. Normally, urine should contain only small amounts of proteins. Urinary tract infections can cause a temporary increase in proteins in the urine. If you have a positive result for proteins in your urine, it is important to consult a doctor for further evaluation and diagnosis.
