Is Bacterial Vaginosis a Sexually Transmitted Infection?

Speaker

Abstract

Despite over 60+ years of research, the etiology of bacterial vaginosis (BV), the most common vaginal infection, remains controversial. Epidemiological data strongly suggest that BV is acquired via sexual transmission. This presentation will review pertinent epidemiological data regarding BV, particularly as it relates to sexual transmission. It will also discuss current hypotheses regarding the etiology of BV. 

Learning Objectives: 

1. Review the epidemiology of bacterial vaginosis (BV), particularly as it relates to sexual transmission
2. Discuss current hypotheses regarding the etiology of BV
