The Vaginal Microbiome in Health and Disease: Part 1

The Vital Roles of this Under-Appreciated Ecosystem

   Watch Promo   Enroll in Course

Humans, like all animals, coexist in intimate, mutually-dependent relationships with microorganisms – generally referred to as microbiomes. There are a number of microbiomes that play key roles in human health. The most well-known, and well-researched, is the gastrointestinal microbiome. In this lecture series, however, we’re going to be exploring another vital, but generally underappreciated, ecosystem – the vaginal microbiome.

What we'll cover in Part 1 of the lecture series:

  • The characteristics that define a healthy vaginal microbiota
  • The 5 Community State Types into which almost all healthy vaginal microbiomes can be categorised
  • Diagnostic techniques that can help us define the health of this ecosystem
  • The importance of this microbiome to a woman’s health
  • Two of the most common vaginal dysbiotic patterns - bacterial vaginosis and Group B Streptococcus – and their potential health implications.
  • Natural medicines that can be used to nurture the vaginal microbiome, restore it to a healthy state after disruption, and treat vaginal dysbiosis, bacterial vaginosis and Group B Streptococcus.

Lecture length ~100 mins.
