What is microbial load?
Updated over a week ago

Microbial load refers to the absolute number of DNA copies found in a sample, reported for the overall sample (available with your comprehensive Evvy test results) and the 11 microbes detected in the preliminary PCR panel (if you did Evvy's Expanded PCR Panel).

Knowing the microbial load can help inform if anything in your microbiome is present in higher or lower amounts than what is considered normal. Microbial load can especially help illuminate conditions like cytolytic vaginosis (CV), bacterial vaginosis (BV), and yeast infections.
