Evvy Vaginal Health Test
Backed by leading OB-GYNs, our at-home vaginal microbiome test uncovers all bacteria and fungi, including those related to symptoms like:
-> Abnormal odor
-> Abnormal discharge
-> pH imbalance
-> and more
"After taking the Evvy test, I found out that I was not suffering from yeast infections, but in fact something else that mimics the same symptoms as a yeast infection and that anti-fungal medicine was actually hurting me, not helping me.
The free consultation call following my test results was even more insightful as I was able to review next steps with a health expert. For the first time, I finally have hope that this "infection" is almost over. Thank you Evvy!!!!"
"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. I recommend [Evvy] to all of my friends and every woman I meet who has had a similar story."
"After several years of suffering from chronic UTIs, I finally have an explanation that no doctor has been able to offer me in the past. Because of Evvy, I now have an “action plan” to work on with my doctor...that will hopefully keep me UTI-free!"
"I did my first Evvy test more out of curiosity than because of a specific symptom. I learned a lot of what I considered "normal" was actually problematic and could cause long term issues for me. Once I was armed with the data from Evvy, I was able to make a plan with my doctor to get my vaginal health back on track."

We have answers.
What bacteria and fungi does an Evvy test look for?
The Evvy Vaginal Health Test reveals the prevalence of all bacteria and fungi in your microbiome! We know picking up on "everything" is not a common way of thinking about testing, but that's what differentiates our test from all others on the market.
This means we can identify bacteria like Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus iners, Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma, Gardnerella, and more, in addition to fungi like Candida albicans and Candida glabrata. We can even get to the species level of Candida and Lactobacillus, so you have the highest fidelity answers on your health.

How long does an order take to ship?
Orders typically ship in 1-2 business days and take 3-5 days to arrive via USPS.
How long does it take to get results?
Our Vaginal Health Test is the only test on the market to use a high-fidelity sequencing process called metagenomics to analyze your results. Since this process is intensive, results typically take 2-3 weeks to get back once they arrive at our lab.
Is Evvy CLIA compliant?
Yes — Evvy tests are analyzed in a U.S. laboratory that is certified by CLIA standards. A CLIA certified lab must meet strict quality standards and ensure both the accuracy and validity of your results.
Can I pay with my FSA/HSA account?
Evvy’s Vaginal Health Test is eligible for reimbursement by most HSA and FSA plans, but we can't guarantee coverage because every plan is a little different. Check in with your plan to make sure Evvy fits their guidelines. You can obtain an itemized receipt, as long as your kit is registered, by contacting our care team email@example.com.
What do you mean by “next gen sequencing”?
Next generation sequencing is a powerful, modern tool for analyzing DNA and RNA. Evvy is the first and only consumer test on the market to use metagenomic sequencing to analyze the vaginal microbiome, enabling us to sequence the entire genome and uncover all bacteria and fungi present.
Unlike other 16S "next-gen" sequencing tests that only look at specific variable regions, metagenomics allows us to uncover the proportional amounts of all bacteria and fungi in your microbiome. Most doctor’s offices actually use an even lower fidelity form of testing, called PCR, to return a binary “yes/no” on the presence of certain bacteria.
Can I discuss my results with my doctor?
Definitely! We highly recommend discussing all your symptoms and Evvy test results with your providers. You will be able to download your results to share with your care provider. The download also includes a brief explanation of the test, lab validity, and results section to introduce your provider to the Evvy test.
Wait...what's my vaginal microbiome?
Great question. Your vaginal microbiome is the complex community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your vagina. When your vaginal microbiome is dominated by healthy bacteria, it can actually help protect you from infections and other adverse health outcomes — which is why it's so important to regularly test your microbiome and check on if those good bacteria are thriving. You can learn more about your microbiome here!
What are the age restrictions on this Evvy test?
You must be 18 years or older to purchase an Evvy test. Folks under the age of 18 will not be able to create an account or receive results.
What is your stance on data privacy?
We fiercely protect your privacy every step of the way — and we will never sell your data. Evvy implements several physical and technical security measures to ensure confidentiality, integrity, security, and availability of Evvy and customer data by employing industry standard safeguards such as de-identification, pseudonymization, encryption, and data segmentation.
Do you ship internationally?
