The Microbiome Report

Sep 3, 2020

Just like our skin, gut and mouth, vaginas also have a unique microbiome that impacts everything from comfort to sex to birth, and beyond. Andrea talks to Takiya Ballard, a Certified Nurse Midwife, about how to keep a vagina happy during all phases of life.  

They discuss differences in microbes across racial groups, how microbial diversity influences the susceptibility of contracting an STI, methods of birth control, bacterial and yeast infections, Group B-Strep, water birth and more.
