You’ve probably heard of the “microbiome” – it’s the ecological community of all the different microorganisms that inhabit the human body, and we typically refer to it when we talk about our gut health.
But did you know that we also have flora in our vagina and genital tracts? Our vaginal microbiome can impact our health and reproductive system, but the truth is, we don’t always know why, or what to do with the information we have. In this episode, Dr Raelia Lew answers some microbiome FAQs, covering everything from lactobacilli to bacterial vaginosis to fertility concerns.
