What is BV?

 

      BV is a mild infection of the vagina caused by an imbalance in the growth of the bacteria that normally populate the vagina - it is not known exactly why this imbalance in bacterial growth occurs. This condition used to be called Gardnerella vaginitis, because Gardnerella is a type of bacteria that sometimes causes the infection. We now know that overgrowth of other types of bacteria can also cause BV.

 

-       Lactobacillus spp. is the most frequently isolated genus of bacteria found in the healthy vaginal flora - they  play a role in maintaining the balance of the normal vaginal flora by producing hydrogen peroxide.

 

      Unlike sexually transmitted infections:

 

-       Infection results from bacteria that are normally found in the vagina

 

-       A woman does not get the infection from a sex partner - It is most common in sexually active women, but women who are not sexually active also can develop the condition.

  

BV can cause serious problems in pregnancy

 

      Problems caused by BV – include premature labor, premature birth, infection of the amniotic fluid, and infection of the uterus after delivery. Screening for bacterial vaginosis and treatment if necessary during pregnancy can help prevent these complications.
