Atopobium vaginae (PCR) in urine
Lactobacilli ensure a stable mutual balance. The first signs of bacterial vaginosis are changes in the balance of the amount and composition of the natural microflora of the vagina, during which the amount of lactobacilli decreases significantly and bacteria unusual for the natural flora begin to multiply: Gardnerella vaginalis, Atopobium vaginae, Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma urealyticum, etc. Atopobium vaginae is rarely found in the presence of normal flora, but is almost always found in cases of relapsing, recurrent bacterial vaginosis. In men, Atopobium vaginae causes balanoposthitis (inflammation of the head of the penis and the foreskin covering it).
