Abstract

Introduction: Different factors have been identified for bacterial vaginosis recurrence. But still the main cause of recurrent bacterial vaginosis remains a mystery. This study was performed with aim to determine the relationship between personal and medical factors with recurrent bacterial vaginosis in women referred to the gynecologic clinics of Mashhad. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 61 women with recurrent bacterial vaginosis symptoms who had at least 3 times of bacterial vaginosis  symptoms during last year and referred to gynecologic clinics of 17 Shahrivar and Bahar Tamin Ejtemaie hospitals of Mashhad in 2015. Data collection tools included demographic � medical questionnaire and Amsel clinical criteria (To diagnose vaginosis recurrence). Data analysis was performed by SPSS software (version 16) and binary logistic regression. PResults: According to the results of binary logistic regression, there was significant relationship between husband's job (OR = 0.15, 95CI= 0.02-0.93, P= 0.005), family income (OR = 2.07, 95CI= 1.23-3.87, P= 0.024), the number of intercourse per week (OR = 2.15, 95CI= 1.03-3.70, P= 0.015), the time of changing the smell of the discharge in the menstrual cycle (OR = 1.76, 95CI= 0.23-2.71, P= 0.004) and vaginal douches (OR = 1.59, 95CI= 0.52-2.44, P= 0.041) with bacterial vaginosis recurrence. But, there was no significant association between other variables with vaginosis recurrence (P> 0.05). Conclusion: Factors such as occupation, income, intercourse numbers and vaginal douche are effective in the recurrence of bacterial vaginosis, so it is recommended that these factors be considered in educational programs for couples.
