gardnerella

Definition

gardnerella rate
(Adult / Slang)
1. A bacteria, also known as: Haemophilus vaginalis / Gardnerella vaginalis / Corynebacterium vaginalis , that is the most common cause of bacterial vaginosis.

2. The infection itself, also known as: vaginitis / bacterial vaginosis , which occurs when the bacterial balance that normally exists in the vagina is upset. SYMPTOMS: Although frequently asymptomatic, it is estimated that 40% of women seen at STD clinics are infected. A thin, smelly discharge; redness, itching, and irritation of the vagina, making sexual intercourse uncomfortable. Even when no signs are apparent, affected women may have an unpleasant-smelling and frothy greenish, yellow, or white discharge, pain and itching. Women who have been infected are more than twice as likely to develop tubal adhesions that may lead to infertility. TREATMENT: The most common treatment is oral metronidazole (Flagyl). This drug is very risky for pregnant women and must not be taken during the first 3 months of pregnancy.
