A Corrigendum on
Variations in Vaginal, Penile, and Oral Microbiota After Sexual Intercourse: A Case Report

by Carda-Diéguez, M., Cárdenas, N., Aparicio, M., Beltrán, D., Rodríguez, J. M., and Mira, A. (2019). Front. Med. 6:178. doi: 10.3389/fmed.2019.00178

In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 1 as published. The penile swab compositions for H2O2 and 15H2O2 were mistakenly swapped. Similarly, the vaginal swab compositions for H2O2 and 15H2O2 were also mistakenly swapped. The corrected Figure 1 appears below.

Figure 1. Microbial composition of penile and vaginal swabs. Most abundant genus were plotted in different colors. NoS, microbiota without sexual intercourse; BeS, immediately before sexual encounter; AfUS, 4 days after unprotected sexual encounter, no oral sex and with ejaculation inside the vagina; AfPS, immediately after vaginal sex with condom and oral sex; H2O2 after 1 day of H2O2 treatment; 15H2O2, after 15 days of intermittent H2O2 treatment. Male and female samples are indicated with the corresponding symbol.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
