Yeast (Fungal) Infection Testing in London

The testing for a vaginal yeast infection involves a series of tests to diagnose the cause of vaginitis. Vaginitis usually results from infections due to bacteria, parasites, or yeast. Yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, are common. Our test for yeast infection is quick, pain-free, and accurate. Book your appointment with us!


Yeast infections, caused by the Candida fungus, can result from imbalances in the vaginal microbiota. Factors such as diabetes, antibiotic use, hormonal changes, douching, a weak immune system, tight clothing, pregnancy, and uncontrolled HIV may increase the risk.

When should I get tested?

If you experience symptoms such as burning, redness, itching, or unusual discharge in the genital area, then you need to get tested for a genital fungal infection. 


Symptoms in Women

  • White discharge that appears like cottage cheese
  • Genital itching and/or burning
  • Pain when urinating or during sex
  • Swelling and redness of the labia and vagina

Symptoms in Men

  • Burning or itching
  • Redness
  • Rashes on the head of the penis that might be painful 

What does the test include?

The test involves a pelvic examination and collecting a vaginal swab or discharge sample. Tests include microscopic examination, pH measurement, PCR testing, and culture tests to identify the yeast species and determine appropriate treatment. 

What to Expect

  • Step 1

  • Preparing for the test

    You do not have to make special preparations for a yeast test.

  • Step 2

  • During the test

    The doctor will carefully examine your cervix and vaginal wall to detect any signs of infection. After this, they will take cells from the vagina for further diagnosis through laboratory tests. They may inquire whether the patient was taking any antibiotic medication and confirm the sexual medical history of the patient. This can help verify whether there has been a vaginal yeast infection or any STIs in the past.

  • Step 3

  • About the test results

    We provide you with the choice of receiving your test results either through a phone call, over email, by getting a hard copy through the post, or by collection in-person.
