Vaginitis is caused by several microbial agents and non-infective irritants. It is usually associated with urethritis, dysperunia, dysmenorrhea and lower abdominal pain. Microbial agents are transmitted through sexual contact and unhygienic habits. Hence, this study is designed to rule out the incidence of Microbial agents in reproductive women by microscopy, staining &culture. 100 patients after sensitization of the project were taken for this study Samples processed by microscopy, special staining and culture. The culture was performed with KUPFERBERG media. Out of 100 samples, 54 grew bacterial colonies, 30 were found to be positive for Trichomonas vaginalis, 2 for Candida albicans and the remaining 14 were having normal vaginal flora. The parasitic agents were found in 30 swabs by Giemsa stain. Preliminary wet mount microscopic examination revealed 15 cases to be positive. The analysis showed the correlation between bacterial and parasitic isolation, which was more common among sexually active female patients, which requires screening of patients in appropriate manner and treat accordingly to envisage a healthy quality life for the patients.
