ABSTRACT

Vaginal infections are also known as vaginosis. The incident of vaginosis is very common and occurs several times in whole life of a woman. Gardnerella vaginalis, Prevotella, Peptostreptococcus, Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Escherichia coli, Bacteroides spp., Haemophilus influenza etc. are some most ommon agents to cause vaginosis. Vaginosis especially occurs during the young age starting for early twenty’s to late thirty’s. Because of the most sexual activity occurs in this age period and lacking in knowledge of proper personal hygiene, poor socioeconomic condition are responsible for such diseases. In the current study, about hundred bacterial isolates were collected from hundreds individual patients having vaginosis and their drug resistance pattern was observed. Six types of bacteria was found with most predominat Escherichia coli (48 isolates), Staphylococcus aureus (26 isolates), Streptococcus pyogenes (15 isolates). After doing drug resistance pattern it was quite shocking that all of the isolates are already resistant to multiple antibiotic drugs in use at present. Among them about 23 isolates (Escherichia coli-8, Staphylococcus aureus- 9, Streptococcus pyogenes-3, Haemophilus influenzae-3) showed most resistance to the antibiotics. To prevent vaginosis it is needed to use protection during intercourse, having only one sexual partner, personal hygiene maintenance, eating probiotic containing food like curd, cheese for supplementation of more Lactobacillus spp. which helps keeping low pH in vagina making it difficult for growth of pathogens and seeking for treatment when symptoms of vaginosis appears. Sooner the treatment starts better the physical status.

Keywords: Vaginosis, sexual activity, hygiene, drug resistance.
