The overall prevalence of bacterial vaginosis
among pregnant women is very high in present study (65.6%).
bacteriana afecta a millones de mujeres en edad reproductiva, y esta asociada a diversos problemas, tales como parto prematuro, enfermedad inflamatoria pelvica y endometritis post-parto y post-aborto, asi como a un aumento en la susceptibilidad a diversos patogenos causantes de infecciones de transmision sexual (ITS), tales como Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis, Chlamydia trachomatis, virus del papiloma humano (VPH) y el virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana (HIV), candidiasis, entre otros (3).
In contrast, vaginal pH fared poorly as a predictor of bacterial vaginosis
defined as a Nugent score of 7 or greater.
3) Gram staining - for bacterial vaginosis
and Neisseria gonorrheae.
Our data are fairly comparable with another Slovenian study, in which bacterial vaginosis
was determined clinically and microbiologically in women in three hospital wards of the Ljubljana Gynecology Clinic.
Vaginal PH was measured to assess bacterial vaginosis
using Ph-indicator strips (Merck KGaA, 64271 Damstadt, Germany) after speculum insertion in lithotomy position.

With many negative outcomes now linked to bacterial vaginosis
(BV), it is important that women get tested and treated.
A Changes in vaginal flora, such as a decreasing normal presence of lactobacilli (large gram-positive rods) and an increased presence of other bacteria, particularly Gardnerella vaginalis (gram-negative to gram-variable pleomorphic rods), is associated with bacterial vaginosis
(BV), the most common cause of vaginitis in women of reproductive age.
(BV) is the most common cause of unpleasant vaginal odor and discharge in women of reproductive age.
 Nugent scores of 0-3 were graded as normal flora, 4-6 as intermediate abnormal flora, and 7-10 as bacterial vaginosis
Around 30% of cases are caused by maternal infection leading to bacterial vaginosis
. A randomised controlled trial in Jakarta assessed whether early self-diagnosis and treatment of bacterial vaginosis
could lower the pre-term birth rate.
