B.Y.M. Technologies® Pioneering Microbiome Solutions

We are a team of scientists creating non-antibiotic, microbiome products for bladder health that support the body’s natural defences. Our promise is to create products that are efficient and always accessible.

P.Happi® by B.Y.M. Technologies®

P.Happi®, the first serum by B.Y.M. Technologies® uses our proprietary ingredient B.Y.M.® 1405, a good bacterium derived from nature to actively protect and re-establish the intimate microbiota.

P.Happi® is a unique, scientifically proven bio-active serum that helps balance the intimate microbiota. Think of it like a bouncer – keeping out the bad bacteria and looking after the good ones helping the body boost its natural defences.

Meet Our Founder

After completing her PhD in Synthetic Biology/Bioengineering at Imperial College London, Dr Chiara Board founded B.Y.M Technologies® after being tired of cranberry juice and the lack of innovation offered to women in the space. A recurrent UTI sufferer herself she set out to create a non-antibiotic solution that would facilitate a shift in the balance of the microbiota helping to promote long term vaginal and urinary health.

What is your ‘microbiota’?

Your body has trillions of microbes – your microbiota. This includes ‘good’ bacteria that help with your natural defences and bacteria that turn ‘bad’ and lead to infections like UTIs when they start living in areas where they don’t belong. It’s important to have a healthy balance of good bacteria.

BV/ AV Thrush STIs Cervical Cancer Menopause Endometriosis Fertility UTIs How does an unbalanced intimate microbiota affect health?


When we lose healthy,
protective lactobacilli, the vaginal
pH increases and pathogens such as
Gardnerella vaginalis can easily invade and
cause Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
or Aerobic Vaginitis (AV).


Candida albicans is a yeast
that is naturally present in the vagina,
but when your protective lactobacilli are reduced (like after a course of antibiotics)
it can overgrow and cause Thrush.


A lack of protective lactobacilli has been associated with an increased risk of getting Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia and HIV.

Cervical Cancer

Human Papillomavirus
(HPV, think pap smears) is a really
common virus that usually clears away
on its own, but can lead to Cervical Cancer
if it sticks around. A healthy vaginal
microbiome, with Lactobacillus
bacteria, may help clear the virus.


Hormonal shifts during
menopause cause the vaginal wall
to become thin and dry, and amounts of
healthy lactobacilli to reduce. All of this
makes the vaginal skin more prone to
infection by external bacteria. It’s
common for women to suffer
from more UTIs during


Endometriosis is a painful condition
caused by womb-like tissue growing outside
of the womb. Studies have shown that
women who suffer from the condition are
more likely to have pathogens such as
Gardnerella, Streptococcus and Escherichia
(E. coli). More studies are needed to
figure out if these bacteria cause
the disease and how exactly they
are connected.


When the microbiome contains
lots of different bacteria (rather than mostly
Lactobacillus), there may be increased risk of
infertility. Studies have shown increased
inflammation and indicated that “bad”
bacteria may damage sperm. Healthy
lactobacilli may make the female
genital tract more stable.


Unfortunately, the distance
between gut bacteria (from the rectum)
and the vagina is quite short. Healthy
lactobacilli generally protect us and stop the
gut bugs, like E. coli, from growing in the
vagina. If there aren’t enough lactobacilli,
these “bad” bacteria can spread to the
urethra, bladder and even the kidneys,
causing painful infections that
often have to be treated
with strong antibiotics.

“We're excited to see more funding in women's health, particularly in underserved illnesses like UTI. Although recurrent UTI is such an enormous, global issue, there is still much that is not understood. Research that leads to better treatment options, and most of all, better outcomes for patients, is crucial.”

Founder & CEO of Live UTI Free

“B.Y.M.’s genius is to design the power of natural symbiosis into its elegant, patient-centric formulations for sustainable women’s health. We share B.Y.M.'s insight that human beings are compound organisms that thrive in symbiosis with their microbiome.”
