Vaginal discomfort is one of the leading reasons women seek healthcare advice, and over 90% of these cases can be attributed to imbalances in the vaginal microbiome. Yet current standards for vaginal health testing and care don’t take into account the entire vaginal microbiome. Instead, vaginal healthcare is underpinned by overly simplistic methods like microscopy and brute-force antibiotics.

Evvy, a female-founded startup on a mission to close the gender health gap, launched the Evvy Vaginal Health Test, the first and only at-home metagenomics-based vaginal microbiome test, in 2021 to finally provide women and their providers access to this overlooked but critical biomarker.

Today, Evvy is announcing the expansion of its platform, which now offers end-to-end care, including physician-reviewed results and personalized prescription treatment programs, in addition to its groundbreaking Vaginal Health Test. Developed alongside the world’s leading experts, Evvy’s platform is now the first and only vaginal healthcare service to bring together state-of-the-art testing, precision prescription treatments, and dedicated coaching to give women and people with vaginas the care they deserve.

“The status quo in vaginal health is simply unacceptable given how prevalent these conditions are and how significantly they impact our quality of life,” said Priyanka Jain, CEO and Co-Founder of Evvy, “That’s why we decided to leverage our first-of-its-kind data platform and scientific advisory board to develop a new standard of care that women and people with vaginas can access from the comfort of their own home.”

Evvy’s expanded and innovative platform is designed on three principles:

“As an OB GYN, I know how frustrating it is for both patients and clinicians to lack access to effective testing and treatments,” said Dr. Rebecca Nelken, OB/GYN and Founding Physician at Evvy. “Evvy’s new care platform is revolutionary, and I am thrilled that patients across the country will finally have access to the best in class testing, holistic treatments, and empathetic support they deserve.”

Users can access clinical care with Evvy after taking an Evvy Vaginal Health Test, depending on their results and health history. An Evvy-affiliated provider reviews the patient’s results, and if they’re eligible, develops a 2-month personalized treatment program, which may include prescription medication and research-backed supplements. Every patient receives treatments designed with exactly the right ingredients for them, shipped directly and discreetly from a partner pharmacy. All treatment programs also include 2 calls with a certified health coach to provide empathetic support throughout the experience.

The Evvy Vaginal Health Test is currently available in all 50 US states, and the new care platform is available in 39 US states (with plans to expand to all 50 states this year).
