Diagnosis and Treatment of Vaginal Discharge in Pregnancy

S M Ross et al. S Afr Med J.

Abstract

A total of 232 pregnant Black antenatal patients was examined to determine the clinical features of vaginal infection. There was no correlation between the symptoms and the infection. The finding of a 'strawberry' vagina was specific for Trichomonas vaginalis infection, for which a single dose of 1 600 mg metronidazole (Flagyl) was found to be a highly effective form of therapy.
