The frequency of bacterial vaginosis (BV) ranges from 12 to 64% among diseases of the female body and in many respects depends on the contingent of the women being examined. Nitrosamines,the metabolic products of obligatory anaerobic bacteria, are coenzymes of carcinogenesis and can be one of the causes of the development of cervical cancer.
The objective: is to evaluate the efficacy of bacterial vaginosis in women of reproductive age.
Patients and methods. Of study 64 women of reproductive age with BV were examined and treated, which 34 patients (group I study) conducted our therapy with tinidazole and the local preparation Lactagel. 30 patients (group II) received standard treatment. The control group consisted of 27 healthy women.
Results. The article presents the results of treatment of BV in women of reproductive age. In 94.1% of cases we’ve achieved a clinically significant effect in compared to Group II (76.7%) after 10 days of treatment. Three months after the end of treatment, recovery occurred in 97.1% of the patients in the main group (Group II – 86.6%).
Conclusions. The application of the complex bacterial vaginosis treatment offered by us showed a high recovery rate and a low rate of relapse in women of reproductive age.
Key words: bacterial vaginosis, diagnosis, treatment, Lactagel.
