DESCRIPTION

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is characterized by the substitution of the vaginal flora, normally dominated by lactobacilli, by a complex and abundant flora of strictly or optionally anaerobic bacteria that are normally found in vagina. Gardnerella vaginalis is the most common cause of bacterial vaginosis in the sexually active mature patient. Abundant foul–smelling homogenous, gray-white secretions vaginal secretions are the typical symptom of infection by Gardnerella vaginalis (GV). The bacteria are also found in women without a history compatible with a sexually transmitted disease, and often produces no symptoms. Gardnerella vaginalis is a common vaginal bacterial infection that affects three out of four women at least once in their lives and usually accompanies either a yeast, trichomonas or urinary tract infection. Men can be infected through sexual intercourse and can also transmit to additional partners.

Frequently asked questions

No, the urine can be collected at any time. However, the first urination in the morning will have higher concentration which aids the test accuracy.

No, the bloody urine contains red blood cells which can alter the reading since the reaction line for this test isalso red-purple.

It is suggested to add no more than 6 drops of urine into the test tube to mix with the buffer. For test purpose, it is better to add no more than 6 drops as it may leak out of the Sample well (S well) and affect the reading.

The test reading cannot be longer than 30 minutes because the negativity detected may become positive as time gets longer due to air oxidation. The result will not be accurate and cannot be taken as a final record.

The depth of color will vary depending on subject’s urine composition, temperature difference, and humidity. The background color can be purple, red, or close to white. The test is effective as long as the line appeared on the “C” Control zone.

While there are many possible symptoms of Gardnerella vaginalis, there are a large percentage of women (and men) who do not have any symptoms. If Gardnerella is not treated in a timely manner, the bacteria can transfer to the urethra and also cause a urinary tract infection. The bacteria may also cause an abnormal Pap smear result, but treating the infection should result in a negative test result (pending there are no other issues).

Please make an appointment with a doctor for further personal advice and attend any possible clinical tests. Doctors will provide detailed information and suggestions for the test positive subjects.

This indicates that the subject does not have a Gardnerella vaginalis infection. However, it is strongly suggested to do the test with a sex partner because male may not have any symptom while infected and other partner may be infected through intercourse.
