Invivo Vaginal Microbiome Testing

Welcome to the realm of women's health, where the vaginal microbiome takes centre stage. This often overlooked ecosystem of microorganisms plays a crucial role in maintaining not only vaginal health but also fertility and pregnancy. In this exploration, we'll uncover the importance of a balanced vaginal microbiome and its implications for women's well-being.

Just like the gut, the vagina harbours a diverse array of microorganisms, creating what's known as the vaginal microbiome. This complex community primarily consists of bacteria, with Lactobacillus species typically dominating in healthy individuals. The presence of these beneficial bacteria helps maintain an acidic pH, creating an inhospitable environment for harmful pathogens.

A balanced vaginal microbiome is essential for maintaining vaginal health and preventing infections. Lactobacilli produce lactic acid, which helps keep the vaginal pH low, inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria, yeast, and other pathogens. This protective barrier reduces the risk of common vaginal infections like bacterial vaginosis (BV) and yeast infections (vulvovaginal candidiasis).

Beyond vaginal health, the composition of the vaginal microbiome can also impact fertility. Research suggests that imbalances in the vaginal microbiome, particularly decreased levels of Lactobacillus species, may be associated with infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss. A healthy vaginal microbiome creates an optimal environment for sperm survival and motility, facilitating fertilisation.

During pregnancy, maintaining a balanced vaginal microbiome is crucial for maternal and foetal health. An imbalance in the vaginal microbiome has been linked to complications such as preterm birth and low birth weight. Moreover, certain bacterial infections during pregnancy, such as BV, may increase the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes, including preterm labor and neonatal infections.

Promoting a balanced vaginal microbiome involves adopting practices that support its natural equilibrium. This includes practicing good hygiene, avoiding douching or harsh chemical products, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, probiotics containing Lactobacillus strains may help restore and maintain vaginal microbial balance in some individuals.


By understanding the importance of vaginal health and adopting practices that promote microbial balance, women can take proactive steps towards nurturing their overall well-being. All tests include a full report and advice where necessary.
