Analysis of the intimate vaginal microbiome

Description

Female microbiome assessment

This test provides information on the composition of the female microbiome. This area of the female body is populated by hundreds of microorganisms. This test is suitable for you if you have any uncomfortable symptoms or if you are planning a pregnancy, or if you repeatedly experience conditions such as bacterial vaginosis (BV).

EcologiX is an innovative vaginal health and intimate microbiota profile using cutting edge technology; quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) provide an accurate, reliable and quantifiable measurement of female microbiota abundance and intimate inflammatory markers.

The profile detects:

– Inflammation
– Abundance of four key Lactobacillus species associated with eubiosis – (markers for vaginal health)
– Abundance of strictly anaerobic bacteria (associated with dysbiosis or imbalance)
– Abundance of enteric bacteria (associated with aerobic vaginitis)
– Abundance of bacterial vaginosis (BV) associated bacteria

Tests need to be booked in conjunction with a suitable nutrition consultation to help you understand what the test results mean for you and what you can do to support your gut health.
