Description


This ground-breaking clinical tool assesses the vaginal microbiome (bacteria and yeast) – a key ecosystem for female health and reproductive optimisation.

Using quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), this is the most technologically advanced vaginal microbiome profile to provide accurate analysis of the microbiota abundance, host inflammatory markers and pH.

Disruption of microbiota composition and functions, termed dysbiosis, has been linked to a multitude of disorders, including: bacterial vaginosis (BV), premature delivery in pregnant women, infertility, miscarriages and increased risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Analysis and monitoring of the vaginal microbiota is therefore extremely important for health and can be used to inform treatment plans and lifestyle factors.

NOTE: Vaginal EcologiX is not suitable for self-testing in pregnancy. Samples can only be collected by your qualified healthcare professional if deemed safe to do so during pregnancy.

3 reviews for Vaginal EcologiX

  1. Milena Mastroianni verified healthcare provider verified buyer

    As a registered nutritional therapist specialised in fertility, this test has become a prerequisite for most of the female clients in the couples I work with. This has enabled us to identify important pieces of their fertility puzzle time and time again. The results often provide a plan of action and/or peace of mind when embarking on a round of fertility treatment or a new frozen embryo transfer. It’s now become a fixed part of my nutrition programs and have included it my testing packages, so can’t see myself ever stopping using it in my practice.

  2. The Wylde Herbalist verified healthcare provider

    I’m a medical herbalist and I specialise in helping women with their vaginal health, specifically women who have passed through the menopause transition. Invivo’s Vaginal EcologiX test is perfect when we need a snapshot of what is exactly going with someone’s intimate microbiome. This can be when their symptoms are confusing and we are not getting a clear picture of what is going on for them, or when we have have used therapeutics targeted for what appears to be going on, but we are not getting the results we wanted – this test allows me to use a highly targeted approach with confidence as it gets to the heart of the matter and allowing my patients to get comfortable quicker! Invivo’s support functions are also amazing and knowing that there is such a knowledgable team there is so reassuring. Thank you Invivo – from me, and my patients too. Outstanding stuff.

  3. Rachel Sherriff verified healthcare provider

    Using the Vaginal Microbiome test within my practice has enabled me to offer more ways to support my clients on their path to parenthood. When dysbiosis is identified and addressed it has increased pregnancy rates and reduced recurrent miscarriage rates within my patient cohort. It can be particularly helpful in patients who have been told their fertility issues are ‘unexplained’. The support call function has also been invaluable and the expertise of the Invivo staff is fantastic.
