Female Reproductive Microbiota - MicroVE

The health and wellbeing of the female reproductive system is crucial for successful embryo implantation.

What is the vaginal and endometrial microbiome?

The vaginal and endometrial microbiome refers to the composition of bacterial populations found in these areas. The equilibrium of these populations determines the health and wellbeing of the female reproductive system.

Over 30% of women who experience issues with infertility or recurrent implantation failure are found to have pathogenic microorganisms in their reproductive organs.

What is MicroVE?

MicroVE is a test which studies – using a sample of vaginal fluid and/or endometrial biopsy – the composition of the main bacterial populations which are indicators of the status of equilibrium of the vagina and endometrium. The presence of pathogenic populations is also analyzed. These can cause chronic endometriosis, recurrent implantation failure, and difficulty establishing and maintaining pregnancy.

What results can we expect from MicroVE?

-          The relative abundance of bacterial species from the genus Lactobacillus sp.:  Lactobacillus iners, Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus gasseri, etc.

-          The presence or not of pathogenic or dysbiotic bacteria: Atopobium, Prevotella, Bifidobacterium, Sneathia, Shigella, Gardnerella, Streptococcus, Enterococcus, Staphylococcus, Escherichia, Klebsiella, Neisseria, Chlamydia, Ureoplasma y Mycoplasma

MicroVE is offered in 3 options:

-    MicroVE Vagina – using a vaginal fluid sample Download Brochure
-    MicroVE Endometrium – using an endometrial biopsy sample Download Brochure

-    MicroVE Vagina + Endometrium – using both samples.

This is the optimal option, as it is the most comprehensive study.
