Brief Summary:
Among 300 women that are scheduled a therapeutic abortion screening diagnopsis of BV are done using Gram stained vaginal smear and with a molecular test using PCR for 5 different bacteria.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Infection, Bacterial Diagnostic Test: molecuar test of BV

Detailed Description:
The molecular test will test for Atophobium vaginae, Leopitrichia spp, Megasphaera Mobiluncus and BVAB2

Intervention Details:
  • Diagnostic Test: molecuar test of BV
    diagnosis of BV

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis comparing modified Hay/Ison with molecular diagnosis [ Time Frame: 4 month ]
    Comparing the Gram stained vaginal smears using Hay/Ison (i.e. BV or normal) criteria with a molecular PCR method with 5 different bacterium and after an algoritm end up with the result (i.e. BV or normal). The number of women with the diagnosis of BV with each of the diagnostic test can be compared calculatitng a KAPPA index
