Bacterial Vaginosis (Bv)

As bacterial vaginosis is called vaginitis on the floor of a complex change in the vaginal flora, in which the lactobacilli are suppressed and proliferate anaerobes. Symptoms include a gray, thin liquid, smelling fishy vaginal discharge and itching. The diagnosis is confirmed by examination of vaginal secretions. The treatment with metronidazole (orally or locally) or clindamycin (local).

Bacterial vaginosis is the most common form of infectious vaginitis. The cause is unknown. The concentrations of the overgrowth of anaerobes, z. B. Prevotella spp., Peptostreptococcus sp., Gardnerella vaginalis, Mobiluncus sp. and Mycoplasma hominis, take by 10 to up to 100 times, so that they displace the normally protective lactobacilli.

The risk factors are the same as for sexually transmitted diseases (reviewed by sexually transmitted diseases). In homosexual women the risk increases with the number of sexual partners. However, bacterial vaginosis can occur in young women, and treatment of sexual partners seems not affect the later occurrence in sexually active heterosexual women to have. The use of an IUD is also a risk factor. Bacterial vaginosis seems the risk of PID, endometritis abortionem post partum and post, infection of the vaginal stump after hysterectomy, chorioamnionitis, premature rupture of membranes to increase premature labor and premature birth.
