There are cases where the mother was having bacterial vaginosis while she was pregnant and it resulted in either premature birth or low birth weight for the baby and possibly urinary tract infection (UTI) after delivery. There are also some inconclusive studies that showed a link between bacterial vaginosis with second trimester miscarriage.
If by any chance your earlier pregnancy resulted in a premature or low birth rate baby delivery, then it is strongly advisable that you go for a bacterial vaginosis test regardless of whether the signs and symptoms are present or not.
To this day, there still is no accountability for tampon ingredients. Whether or not the dioxin or other substituted harmful chemicals are still used remains a mystery to everyone.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, the number of pregnant women that have bacterial vaginosis is 10-30%. When bacterial vaginosis occurs in a pregnant woman, it can potentially cause problems with the fetus. For example, a baby can be born pre-term or not grow as fast as it should in the uterus that is infected with organisms that cause bacterial vaginosis. There are countless cases where these babies are born with a low birth weight, which causes them to be at risk for many health problems in life.
