What are the results and how long does the ALICE test take?
The ALICE test can identify the pathogenic bacteria that cause chronic endometritis and how much they are in the endometrium. These bacteria are Enterococcus spp, Enterobacteriaceae (Escherichia and Klebsiella), Streptococcus spp, Staphylococcus spp , Mycoplasma spp, and Ureaplasma spp. ALICE also identifies other pathogenic bacteria associated with sexually transmitted diseases, such as Chlamydia and Neisseria. In addition, ALICE provides information on the most recommended antibiotic and/or probiotic treatment to cure endometritis.
The test should be performed by a gynecologist through an endometrial biopsy. The time to obtain the test results may vary depending on the laboratory and the complexity of the sample.
