Everyone who registers will receive a link to the recording after the webinar!
Which microbes should be in a healthy vagina?
We'll start with an overview of the healthy vaginal ecosystem, including hormonal effects. It's wild up in there.
How do vaginal organisms affect systemic health?
Vaginal dysbiosis can be associated with bacterial vaginosis, candida, preterm birth, and (maybe) urovaginal symptoms associated with perimenopause. We'll chat about these.

You know you're curious about the vaginal immune response. How do we know which organisms to keep around and which to kick out?
Do oral probiotics affect the vagina? HOW?
If we give clients oral probiotics, can we expect them to somehow make it into the vagina? That's weird. Let's talk about how probiotics might work and which ones have the best chance of making a difference.
