There are two ways to join:
Healthy people who have never had BV, are not in menopause and have vaginal Lactobacillus can donate vaginal fluid up to 20 times in a 45-day window. Donors are tested for multiple kinds of infections 3 times during that window. Participants who complete all study visits can receive up to $725.
People who have had BV multiple times in the past year, who are not in menopause, and who do not have vaginal Lactobacillus are eligible. Participants will receive oral antibiotics, and then will be randomized to either 2 doses of healthy vaginal fluid or 2 doses of sterile placebo. Participants attend a total of 10 visits over 6 months. Participants who complete all study visits can receive up to $300.
