How to upgrade your Evvy Membership to include our Expanded PCR Panel

Add PCR testing for STIs, antibiotic resistance, and 11 common microbes to your Evvy Membership, with 1-3 day turnaround for prelim results

Updated over a week ago

If you're an Evvy Member, you're already getting the world's most comprehensive at-home vaginal microbiome test with the Evvy Vaginal Health Test, which screens for 700+ bacteria and fungi in the vaginal microbiome.

But if you’re symptomatic, interested in STI testing, or looking for expedited turnaround for preliminary results, we recommend adding our Expanded PCR Panel to your Evvy Membership. Please note, the Expanded PCR Panel is not yet available in NY.

If you upgrade your Evvy Membership to include our Expanded PCR Panel, you’ll also get results for:

  • 4 STIs: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Mycoplasma genitalium, Trichomoniasis (“trich”)

  • 10 Antibiotic Resistance Genes: Quinolone, Methicillin, Vancomycin, Beta-lactam, Carbapenem, Macrolide, Aminoglycoside, Tetracycline, Bactrim, Extended Spectrum Beta Lactamase CTX-M

  • 11 Common Microbes: Candida albicans, Gardnerella vaginalis, Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus gasseri, Mobiluncus curtisii, Mobiluncus mulieris, Mycoplasma hominis, Prevotella bivia, Streptococcus agalactiae (group B), Ureaplasma parvum, Ureaplasma urealyticum

    • Note: these microbes are also tested for via metagenomics in our Vaginal Health Test, but the Expanded PCR Panel tests for them via PCR with a 1-3 day turnaround.

Will I need to take more than one swab to get Expanded PCR Panel results?

No! The Expanded PCR Panel is a set of 3 additional tests that can be run on your same sample, so your Evvy test will look and function the same way it always has: as one easy, at-home swab.

Can I add the Expanded PCR Panel to just some of my tests?

Yes! If you want to decide on a case-by-case basis whether you'd like to add the Expanded PCR Panel to your test, you'll be given the option to add it at the end of your health history form when you activate your next test.
