Fun Facts: Your Gut and Vaginal Microbiome
In women, there’s an important connection between vaginal microbiome and gut microbiome. Both influence your health.
Pathogens in the gut can affect the vagina, potentially contributing to vaginal dysbiosis (VD), when healthy bacteria is reduced. Taking care of your gut can help maintain vaginal health.

When lactobacilli (the main bacteria in the vagina) lose their predominance in the vagina, it can increase the risk of developing bacterial vaginosis, candidiasis or recurrent urinary tract infections.
“The body has a language. It’s trying to communicate. Get curious. What is your body trying to tell you?”
