A Cleveland dot plot representing the allocated VM groups at each sampling point, per participant, over the entire study period. Blue dots represent L. crispatus-dominated samples, green dots represent L. iners-dominated samples, red dots represent vaginal samples with diverse anaerobes and yellow dots represent samples with diverse lactobacilli. Study duration depended on the length of the participant’s menstrual cycle during the study period. Three participants interrupted sampling for one cycle (VH02, VH16 and VH25), but recommenced the cycle thereafter
