Increased Risk for Reproductive Dysbiosis

Based on what you've told us, we found an increased risk of a reproductive dysbiosis, which significantly affects the chances of getting pregnant.

See below how it can manifest and what signals you could notice.

The Science

🦠 Reproductive dysbiosis refers to a change in the microbiome in the reproductive tissues (vaginal and endometrial mucous membranes).

🔥 These changes lead to "good" bacteria being displaced and "bad" bacteria & pathogens accumulating which can lead to subliminal inflammation in the tissues.

🥚 These inflammations (even if not directly measurable) prevent, for example, sperm from transferring to the egg or disrupt the implantation of the egg in the endometrium.

Biological Age

The biological age significantly impacts fertility, with implications for the reproductive microbiome. Already by your late 20s, the female's basic estrogen balance begins to decline, also over 80% of your egg cells are already gone, affecting the microbiome's symbiotic relationship with the reproductive tissues.

Ethnicity & Genetic Predisposition

Women with African American ancestry exhibit a genetic predisposition associated with a higher frequency of disruptions in the reproductive microbiome. Consequently, they experience a greater incidence of infections, as well as an elevated risk of preterm birth compared to individuals of other genetic origins.

Duration of Infertility

If attempts to conceive for 6-12 months yield no pregnancy, it is prudent to consider the presence of asymptomatic reproductive dysbiosis. Notably, up to 50% of affected women, even those with active bacterial infections, may display no symptoms. Evaluating the balanced composition of the reproductive microbiome becomes crucial to rule out this factor.

Fertility Treatments

Scientific evidence supports the substantial advantages of optimizing the reproductive tissues for fertility treatments such as hormonal therapies and IVF. A recent study demonstrated a 6x higher likelihood of achieving direct pregnancy in IVF patients when the reproductive microbiome was purposefully enhanced.

Vaginal Conditions & Disease

Symptoms like vaginal infections (e.g., BV, vaginitis), recurrent UTIs, yeast infections, and even STIs, along with conditions like endometriosis and PCOS, are closely linked to disruptions in bacterial tissue colonization. These issues are more prevalent in women with an imbalanced reproductive microbiome. Unfortunately, these symptoms increase the risk of infertility, primarily due to the hindrance or prevention of sperm transfer by pathogenic agents and failures with egg implantation into the endometrium.

Existing or Extinguished Symptoms

Experiencing unusual discharge, burning, itching, odor, low libido, vaginal dryness or irritation often signifies a disruption in the reproductive microbiome. These symptoms indicate that your tissues are in suboptimal conditions.

Lifestyle Factors

Lifestyle choices undeniably exert a significant influence on reproductive health and the the microbiome. Scientific research has already confirmed that smoking, obesity, regular alcohol consumption, excessive stress-levels and also intense exercise all detrimentally affect the reproductive microbiome and, consequently, fertility.

Use of Antibiotics

Antibiotics play a crucial role in combatting bacterial infections, particularly in cases of prolonged or severe infections. The drawback of antibiotic use is that it indiscriminately targets both good and bad bacteria. Consequently, the reproductive tissues becomes disrupted and require a "rebuilding" of its microbiome.
