BV has long been recognised as a negative risk factor for first trimester miscarriage (2 fold risk)*, but is normally only screened for in fertility specialist centres prior to IVF or other fertility treatment. BV is in most cases sub symptomatic, not resullting in vaginal discharge or irritation. Rates of reported BV in reproductive age women are between 13% and 31% *(S G Ralph, A J Rutherford, J D Wilson, BMJ 319 : 220 (Published 24 July 1999) ) Most studies clearly identify a risk factor for miscarriage in the first 6 weeks after conception (early miscarriage) some have suggested lowered implantation rates may also be occuring due to imflamation of the uterus lining.
