Abstract

This study provides further evidence of the pelvic pathogenicity of bacterial vaginosis. However, it shows that women who have bacterial vaginosis or who have been treated for chlamydial infection in the past achieve pregnancy rates with IVF treatment similar to those of women who have no evidence of such infections.
