What bacteria and fungi does Evvy test for?

The Evvy Vaginal Health Test screens for all bacteria and fungi that have been found in the vaginal and urinary microbiomes — with one swab.

All other vaginal microbiome tests, including other tests at the doctor's office or available online, use technology (called either PCR or 16s) that screens for a predefined & limited list of microbes.

Evvy's test world's first and only CLIA-certified test to use metagenomics, an advanced form of testing that sequences all bacteria and fungi present. That means you don’t have to order several tests to know what’s up down there — just one.

That includes different strains of yeast, E. coli, Ureaplasma, Mycoplasma, Gardnerella, and much much more. Here is an abbreviated list of everything Evvy tests for - if there is a specific microbe you are curious about, please reach out to us directly through the blue chat button on the bottom right of your screen or email to confirm!

If you add our Expanded PCR Panel to your Vaginal Health Test, you'll also receive results for 4 STIs (chlamydia, gonorrhea, trich, and Mycoplasma genitalium), 10 antibiotics resistances, and microbial load for 11 common microbes.

Please note that Evvy does not test for STIs unless you add the Expanded PCR Panel to your test. Evvy does not replace your Pap smear or annual OB-GYN visits.
