Vaginal Microbiota Among Postmenopausal Women

2014-08-27 03:15:18 | BioPortfolio


It is known that vaginal bacteria have an impact upon the health status of the host, in some cases protecting against infection and in other cases causing infection, depending on the bacterial types present. This study will compare the composition of vaginal bacteria to symptoms of vaginal dryness in order to try and identify if certain bacteria might cause some of the problems associated with vaginal dryness among post-menopausal women.
