Results:In this study 38(22.35%) Gardnerella vaginalis were isolated by culture and bacterial vaginosis was detected by different methods 47(27.65%). Antimicrobial resistance is one of the major public health threats. So antimicrobial sensitivity pattern of the organisms should be done at regular intervals.
