Abstract:

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a polymicrobial, most common cause of abnormal vaginal discharge among young women of Reproductive age groups. This cross sectional study were to analyze the prevalence of vaginal infections in the patients attending Obstetrics and Gynaecology with various complaints like increased malodorous   vaginal discharge among sexually active women aged 15-45yrs. We processed 100 High Vaginal Swabs (HVS) of Symptomatic women attending our OPD’s between January and June 2017(06 months). Each HVS were subjected to Wet mount, Gram stain and Culture on BA, Mac Conkey Agar, SDA.  Wet mounts were done to identify Trichomonas vaginalis and Gram stains were done to look for bacterial morphotypes. A total of 100 women participated in the study with the overall prevalence of BV rated 39% out of 39 samples 12 samples grew MS CoNS (30.76%), 08 samples grew MS CoPS (20.51%),07 grew E. coli (17.94%), 04 grew Enterococcus spp (10.25%) and 08 samples yielded anaerobic bacteria (20.51%).  21% were suffering from VVC. Out of these 21% of Candida spp- 10 Samples grew Candida albicans (47%) and 11 samples yielded Non–albicans Candida (52.4%). 05 samples also yielded Trichomonas vaginalis in the wet mounts. We got a wide spectrum of bacteria of 39% and fungi of 21%; 05% also showed Trichomonal infection. Overall 60% of the symptomatic women showed microbiological correlation.
