uBiome launches an at-home women’s health test for HPV, STI’s and bacterial vaginosis
As a genetics company, uBiome offers two sequencing-based microbiome screening tests that promise to provide customers with actionable insight they can use to understand and improve their gut health. But does this necessarily mean the price you pay will deliver the value you expect? Stick with us, and we'll help you explore important factors like these. From a gut health perspective, this is the basic approach behind probiotics.

Raise your hand if you agree that down-there doctor appointments are the worst. During my most recent visit, I went in, peed in a cup, put on a stylish gown, got a giant metal contraction inserted up my hooha, updated her on bae, and then stuck out my veiny arm so she could take my blood and test me for sexually transmitted infections. Basically, what that means is that in addition to testing for four common STIs—gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, mycoplasma genitalium—SmartJane also tests for 19 different types of HPV and the balance of 23 types of vaginal flora a. A single Q-tip-shaped swab and three minutes is all it takes. While a traditional gynecology appointment typically takes about an hour, this at-home STI test took me less than six minutes including going to my mailroom to pick up the package.

Would it be useful for women to know which bacteria are living in their vaginas? A Silicon Valley startup that launched with crowdfunding a few years ago thinks so. One such finding would be a microbiome state called bacterial vaginosis, in which the Lactobacillus species that normally dominate the vagina are low and other species are high. The test is meant to complement rather than replace current standard of care doctor visits and Pap smears, says uBiome CEO and cofounder Jessica Richman. Self-testing for HPV is not a new idea, Marrazzo says, and in developing countries and Costa Rica it has been used in outreach to women who might not be able to access a clinic and get a Pap smear. SmartJane is not a direct to consumer test, but must be ordered by a doctor though uBiome works with a network of doctors that can order tests for patients remotely. Women and their doctors then view the test results online.
