- Bacterial Genomic Sequencing [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Participants were classified into Low Biomass, Lactobacillus, Gardnerella, Diverse, and Other urotypes based on the bacterial DNA at baseline.
- Assessment of Overactive Bladder Questionnaire (OABQ) [ Time Frame: End of study (Week 12) ]The Overactive Bladder Questionnaire (OAB-q) was developed to assess symptom bother and the impact of overactive bladder (OAB) on health-related quality of life (HRQL). The instrument comprises 33 items. Response options for the symptom frequency and HRQL items are presented as 6-point Likert scales ranging from 'none of the time' to 'all of the time' for symptom frequency (and 'not at all' to 'a very great deal' for symptom bother). From these 33 items, six sub-scales are assessed separately: (1) OAB symptom severity, (2) Coping with OAB symptoms, (3) Concern for OAB symptoms, (4) Sleep as a function of OAB symptoms, (5) Social functioning as a consequence of OAB symptoms, and (6) Health related quality of life (HRQL) as a function of OAB symptoms. Each sub-scale score ranges from 0 to 100 (where higher scores indicate more severe OAB symptoms and lower scores indicate minimal symptom severity).
- Assessment of Pelvic Floor Disease Inventory (PFDI) Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The PFDI comprises 46 items on a 4-point symptom severity scale ranging from 1 = "Not at all" to 4 = "Quite a bit". From these items, 13 separate sub-scales are reported: (1) Obstructive discomfort, (2) Irritation, (3) Stress resulting from urinal distress, (4) A general sub-scale for pelvic organ prolapse distress, (5) An anterior sub-scale for pelvic organ prolapse distress, (6) A posterior sub-scale for pelvic organ prolapse distress, (7) An obstructive sub-scale for colorectal anal distress, (8) Incontinence, (9) Pain, and (10) A rectal prolapse sub-scale for colorectal anal distress. For each of these sub-scales, scores from from 0 to 100 (where higher scores indicate greater symptom severity). There are three additional sub-scales: (11) The urinary distress inventory, (12) The pelvic organ distress inventory, and (13) The colorectal distress inventory. Each of these ranges from 0 to 400 (with higher scores indicating greater symptom severity).
