What is the causative microorganism of Bacterial Vaginosis?

Causative Microorganisms


Bacterial vaginosis is more of an odd distinction from the rest of the STDs due to how its causative organism is not necessarily restricted to one particular pathogen. Bacterial vaginosis is often precipitated due to the abnormal increase in the bacterial population of the vagina – leading to an imbalance between the “good” flora and the harmful bacteria.
