Q:

What does Evvy test for?

A:

All bacteria and fungi 

That’s right — every single one known to science and relevant to the vaginal microbiome.

All other vaginal microbiome tests, including those at the doctor's office or online, use technology called either PCR or 16s, which look for a predefined & limited list of microbes.

The Evvy Vaginal Health Test is the only test to use metagenomics instead, an advanced form of sequencing. It is powerful enough to discover all bacteria and fungi present with a single swab!

That means you don’t have to order several tests to get a good picture of what’s up down there — just one.

We test for all disruptive and protective microbes that research has shown are related to...

  • Aerobic Vaginitis (AV)
    e.g. E.coli, Group B streptococci
  • Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
    e.g. Gardnerella vaginalis, Atopobium vaginae, Prevotella bivia
  • Cytolytic Vaginosis (CV)
    e.g. Lactobacillus crispatus
  • Recurrent UTIs
    e.g. E. coli, Klebsiella, Group B strep
  • Good Health
    e.g. Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus jensenii
  • Yeast Infections
    e.g. Candida albicans, Candida glabrata
  • Mycoplasma / Ureaplasma
    e.g. Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma parvum, Ureaplasma urealyticum
And thousands more!
Note that we don’t test for parasites, viruses, or STIs.

Evvy does not replace your Pap smear or regular OB-GYN visits.

Curious what our results actually look like?
Here’s a sample report:

01 --> At A Glance

The first results you’ll receive are your overall health scores, which give a sense of how well-protected your microbiome is.

Your report also includes an interactive visualization of your microbiome, broken down by protective, disruptive, neutral, and unknown microbes.

02 --> Vaginal Microbiome Type

Next, you’ll receive your Community State Type (CST), which is determined by looking at your entire microbial profile.

There are at least 5 CSTs that research has associated with broader health outcomes like infections or fertility challenges (depending on the CST).

03 --> Detailed Results

Evvy’s detailed results reveal all bacteria and fungi and their relative amounts.

Note: These bacteria are NOT an exhaustive list of what we test for — just what was present in this particular sample.

We provide an in-depth description of what it is, what it does, and what symptoms it might be associated with.

We also enable you to filter your list of microbes by the conditions they’ve been associated with in existing research.

An Evvy Success Story

“I have not had BV come back, I have been UTI free and have not seen a hint of a yeast infection for over a year now.

If I do see any sign of these conditions creep up again, I am not paralyzed by anxiety. I feel empowered to take care of myself and I don't feel alone in that journey.”
