Women's Health Study

uBiome is launching a ground-breaking study investigating how the vaginal microbiome changes over the course of the menstrual cycle, and during different phases of life.

If you are a woman and are currently NOT pregnant:

Results from the study will be used to advance research, and findings will be shared with the public. Please join us today.

How it works

Sample

We'll send you a home sampling kit that takes less than 5 minutes to use (and is not gross). It's super easy!

2

Sequence

Our lab uses cutting-edge next generation DNA sequencing technology to identify your bacteria.

Citizen Science

uBiome will share findings about the vaginal microbiome, to accelerate women's health research.
