We can sequence over 125 bacteria species that are commonly found in the vaginal microbiome. Certain bacteria can be harmful and make an environment susceptible to pathogenic growth. However, these bacteria can also be beneficial, regulate your pH levels, and keep harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast infections, and other pathogens away. That’s why it’s so important to test your vagina microbiome. Please see the complete list of bacteria we test for here.
We specialize in bacteria. Bacteria are the most abundant microorganisms in the vaginal microbiome. They moderate the environment to manage yeast, fungi, and other pathogens naturally.
We highly recommend you seek a medical professional for STI or HPV diagnosis or treatment. The vaginal microbiome is the first line of defense against these infections in the woman’s body. Optimizing your vaginal flora is vital in preventative care and can be useful in conjunction with a doctor’s treatment to address recurring vaginal infections.
The Vaginal Health Test is not a diagnostic test. It pinpoints discrepancies in your vaginal microbiome, including if you have high levels of pathogenic bacteria. High levels of pathogens are associated with BV and UTIs. Your Personalized Vaginal Microbiome Report will tell you if you fall within a community state type that is associated with these imbalances. Learn more about bacterial vaginosis here.
No, we do not have a pH strip within the test. However, your targeted probiotic recommendation and food suggestions alongside understanding which bacteria are dominating your vaginal microbiota could help you balance your pH levels naturally.
It is best to check with your doctor. Pregnant women have performed vaginal microbiome testing with their physician’s consent.
1. Do not use if you are pregnant, or seek a request from a provider.
2. Consult your healthcare provider before you use if:
2a. Have recent pelvic pain
2b. Have pain with sexual intercourse
3. Immediately stop use if experiencing any pain during vaginal sample collection.
4. Do not place swab in buffer prior to vaginal sample collection.
Please refrain from taking an at-home vaginal microbiome test if you:
1. Are currently menstruating - Menstruation can alter the vaginal biome therefore for the most accurate representation, it is best to test 5-7 days before or after menstruation.
2. Used antibiotics in the past 48 hours - Antibiotics can destroy healthy flora and cause an inaccurate representation of your vaginal microbiome.
3. Had sexual intercourse in the past 24 hours. - Another person’s bodily fluids can alter your vaginal microbiota temporarily.
4. Applied vaginal lotions, topical creams, or emollients in the past 24 hours. - These can alter the bacteria in your vaginal microbiome.
A recommended probiotic will be suggested based on clinical support for specific strains addressing specific symptoms you’ve experienced and vaginal community state type (CST). Additionally, information will be provided regarding what types of foods/nutrients, as well as lifestyle factors, may be contributing to dysbiosis (leaky vagina) or vaginal health.
Probiotics are recommended based on Community State Type which is determined based on the vaginal biome analysis and presented symptoms.
One of the most pivotal elements of the Ombre Vaginal Health Test is learning which of the vaginal community state types (CSTs) represent your current microbial network. These insights can provide information about reproductive health, vaginal comfort, and other immune factors. Classification is based on the ratio of specific influential bacteria present in your vaginal sample. Learn more about vaginal CSTs here.
Ombre probiotics are formulated with vegetable cellulose capsule that is engineered to bypass stomach acids. The strains within your probiotic colonize the anorectal area. That is anatomically not too far from the vagina and is a risk for vaginal and urinary tract infections. That is why vaginal microbiome testing and probiotics are useful for recurring UTIs and other infections.
These strains of probiotics have been tested through oral administration. We feel this actually speaks more that the strains are delivered orally and have proven to colonize in the vaginal tract.
