|Species||Number of samples with species detected1n = 16|
|L. gasseri||13 (81)|
|L. crispatus||2 (13)|
|L. iners2||2 (13)|
|L. johnsonii||2 (13)|
|L. coleohominis||1 (6)|

*Samples from women with high quantities of H2O2-producing Lactobacillus by culture (≥ 106 CFUs), but were negative for both L. crispatus and L. jensenii in CVL by qPCR.
1Percent total >100% since several isolates contained more than one species.
2H2O2-functionality was reassessed for the 2 isolates that were identified as L. iners. No H2O2-production was observed.
