The prospective Analytical study was conducted in the Department of Microbiology, attached to a Tertiary Care Hospital in Central India after obtaining ethical clearance over a time period of one year. Out of these 320 samples, 200 sample were randomly selected (by Chit system) in our study. Out of 200 samples 46 (23%) samples were culture positive. VVC, Trichomoniasis and other vaginal infection can resolve within a short period of time ,if not treated timely then, it may enhances the growth of co-infection and it is a major cause of morbidity in pregnant women in developing countries like India.
