you are distinctive
and so is your vagina.
Specifically, the vaginal microbiome.It's a community of trillions of microbes that live in your vagina. Microbes include bacteria, which is actually a good thing, mostly. Certain bacteria in the vagina help keep it healthy. But when there is an overgrowth of certain bacteria, or an imbalance of any kind, it can lead to discomfort, itching, odor, or vaginal infections. And the vaginal microbiome is part of the whole ecosystem that is your body, so imbalances here can have an impact on the rest of your health. So, the key is keeping this environment in balance—which is where we come in.
your unique biology matters
it’s why Awesome Woman is obsessed with the science
You were born with a set of genes inherited directly from your parents. And you can’t change them, for better or worse. But, you can influence them. Which means, the more you learn about your genes, the better you can guide them to work in your favor.
In addition to the genes you’re born with, you also have about 39 trillion bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms that live in harmony with your body, from your digestive tract, to your skin to your vagina. Each community of microorganisms is called a microbiome. Like your genes, the more you learn about your microbiome, the better you can guide it to work in your favor.
And the vaginal microbiome is fascinating:
- No two are alike.
- It’s greatly influenced by estrogen levels.
- Your genes, biology, diet, lifestyle, daily habits, and sex life can all affect your microbiome.
- The vaginal microbiome can change, both positively and potentially negatively.
- Changes in the microbiome are linked to various ailments: cancers, autoimmune and cardiovascular disease, vaginal and urinary health, menopause, skin health, and even digestive health.
how we use this research
We use additional diagnostic tests and health data to take it beyond the microbiome, uncovering helpful information about fertility, PMS, PCOS, menopause, and a whole lot more.
We can use state-of-the-art data analyses to help you predict and manage new issues before they arise.
Kind of awesome.
