Screening and management of bacterial vaginosis in pregnancy



Screening and management of bacterial vaginosis in pregnancy



Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada 30(8): 702-708



To review the evidence and provide recommendations on screening for and management of bacterial vaginosis in pregnancy. The clinical practice options considered in formulating the guideline. Outcomes evaluated include antibiotic treatment efficacy and cure rates, and the influence of the treatment of bacterial vaginosis on the rates of adverse pregnancy outcomes such as preterm labour and delivery and preterm premature rupture of membranes. Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL, and Cochrane databases were searched for articles, published in English before the end of June 2007 on the topic of bacterial vaginosis in pregnancy. The evidence obtained was rated using the criteria developed by the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care. Guideline implementation will assist the practitioner in developing an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of bacterial vaginosis in pregnant women. Patients will benefit from appropriate management of this condition. These guidelines have been prepared by the Infectious Diseases Committee of the SOGC, and approved by the Executive and Council of the SOGC. The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada.
