1.Safecare PH Test for BV Bacterial vaginosis
What is Bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is caused by a change in the balance of bacteria in the vagina. Normally, there are a lot of "good" bacteria and some "bad" bacteria in the vagina. The good types help control the growth of the bad types. But when you have bacterial vaginosis, there are not enough good bacteria and too many bad bacteria.
Many women with bacterial vaginosis don't have symptoms. The most common symptom is an increase in vaginal discharge. The discharge often has a fishy smell.
Women who have this problem during pregnancy have a higher chance of miscarriage, early delivery, and an infection after delivery. So it's important for pregnant women with symptoms to be tested.
What is detected by Safecare Vaginal PH test?
Bacterial vaginosis often causes a pH that is higher than normal.
The normal range of Vaginal pH is in 3.8 to 4.5. Vaginal pH will become abnormal if there are many bad bacteria.Safecare Vaginal PH test tells you the results by testing the vaginal secretion at home.
2. Safecare hCG early pregnancy self-testing
What is Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)?
The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin(better known as hCG) is produced during pregnancy. It is made by cells formed in the placenta, which nourishes the egg after it has been fertilized and becomes attached to the uterine wall.
Levels can first be detected by a blood testabout 11 days after conception and about 12-14 days after conception by a urine test.
Typically, the hCG levels will double every 72 hours. The level will reach its peak in the first 8-11 weeks of pregnancy and then will decline and level off for the remainder of the pregnancy.
Guideline To HCG Levels During Pregnancy
hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :
3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/mL
4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/mL
5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/mL
6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/mL
7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/mL
9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/mL
13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/mL
17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/mL
25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/mL
Non-pregnant females: 0 – 5 mIU/mL
Postmenopausal females: 0 – 8 mIU/mL
