Abnormal vaginal flora is a risk factor for preterm labor. Therefore, in high risk pregnancies for preterm labor the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal flora is indicated. Clindamycin and metronidazole given orally are both acceptable treatments in these cases. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of Clindamycin Vs metronidazole for the treatment of abnormal vaginal flora in high risk pregnancies. For this purpose, pregnant women who are considered high risk for preterm labor and were diagnosed with abnormal vaginal flora will be randomly treated either with clindamycin or metronidazole. Eradication of the abnormal flora and adverse effects will be monitored and compared
Abnormal vaginal flora is currently diagnosed among women (20-40%). It is associated with symptoms (bad smell, vaginal discharge) and adverse out-comes in pregnant and not pregnant women. The high recurrence rate raises the long-term effectiveness of therapy. The hypothesis is the persistence of bacteria associated with vaginal flora imbalance as Atopobium vaginae and Gardnerella vaginalis. At the present time there is a lack of an accurate marker for the risk of recurrence.
