Transwomen who undergo affirmation surgery have a new organ – the neovagina – with real gynecological needs! This includes the potential for infections & unhealthy microbial environments. Every part of our body has small organisms (bacteria and fungi), and normally these are a healthy ecology of microbes – our "microbiomes".

Right now, we have very little idea of what a "normal" microbiome is for transwomen. Transbiome seeks to change that.

Aim

Our aim is to get a better basic understanding of the fungal and bacterial diversity found in the neo-vaginal microbiome.
