A large women population of the world is suffering from a vaginal infection commonly known as bacterial vaginosis. The disease is associated with the decrease in the lactobacilli count in the vagina. Till date, there is a lack of full proof treatment modalities for the cure of the disease.

This note discusses about the etiology and the various present-day modalities of treatment of bacterial vaginosis.
