A Cervicotype (CT) assignments were given to 316 samples taken from 88 women. Each row represents the cervicotype designation for each sample in a time series of a given woman. Points are joined when adjacent samples are separated by a 3-month interval. BD Principle coordinate analysis (PCoA) of Bray-Curtis dissimilarity of species-level relative abundances. Samples are colored by CT assignment with ellipses representing an interval of 2 standard deviations around the centroid of a given cluster. B Points represent samples projected in to the PCoA space. C Adjacent time points separated by a 3-month interval are connected by an arrow colored by the CT designation of the early time point. D Summing the vectors by the CT designation of the earlier timepoint shows the overall direction of movement of samples beginning in a particular CT
