Descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) were used for data analysis.

Results: 120 women with bacterial vaginosis were studied. The mean age for bacterial vaginosis was 31.3 years. 68.3% had sexual activity before 20 years. Their most common complaints were malodor discharge (60%) and increased vaginal discharge (33.3%). Whiff test was positive in 95.83% of patients. More than 20% of clue cells were in 96.6% of them..
