    Sorry, I don't know where to put this. But I feel it belongs in ME research because this is where I believe my ME began. I caught a vaginal infection when young (chlamydia trachomatis) I was never the same afterwards. This infection changed the vaginal microbiome and never returned to normal. I suspect the antibiotic pessary could have caused the changed microbiome (?). I personally think this change in microbiome brought my ME on years later via flu.

    Could someone explain this study to me. Was this study done after the women were cleared of the chlamydia infection and found to have changes in the microbiome compared to healthy subjects?

    I thought it was interesting that the amino acids were low? Isn't that what they are finding in ME?

    Thanks

    Probably better in the non-ME research forum. There's plenty of research there that is not ME research but still somehow related.
