Gynecologic consequences of bacterial vaginosis

Academic Article


  • BV is a prevalent sexually associated infection linked to several gynecologic complications and acquisition of STDs and acquisition and transmission of HIV. It seems that normalization of the vaginal flora may be effective for preventing short-term complications. The implications of screening and treating BV to prevent long-term complications are less clear and may depend on the availability of more effective treatment regimens.
