Fiska Rosita, Putti Fatiharani Dewi, Ambar Aliwardani


Gangguan keseimbangan flora bakteri normal dalam vagina menyebabkan vaginosis bakterial. Vaginosis bakterial dapat tidak menunjukkan gejala atau ditandai dengan duh tubuh putih keabuan disertai bau amis. Skor Nugent merupakan standar emas untuk diagnosis. Penggunaan probiotik menunjukkan hasil memuaskan sehingga dipertimbangkan dalam manajemen bakterial vaginosis.


Bacterial vaginosis is caused by disruption of normal bacterial flora balance in the vagina. This disease may show no symptoms; can be characterized by the presence of agrayish-white discharge accompanied by a fishy odor. Nugent score is the gold standard for diagnosis. The use of probiotics shows satisfactory results; and may be considered in the management of bacterial vaginosis.
