    - BV-associated species that produce organic acids are: Peptococcus (butyrate and acetate production), Dialister (propionate production), Gardnerella vaginalis (acetate and succinate production), Bacteroides (succinate production), gram-positive cocci, and Clostridium (caproate production)
  • [1.2] [#Normal Vaginal condition
    - Type 2 CST is healthy and dominated by #Lactobacillus gasseri. - It has a strong defense against infections and a decreased risk of developing BV (bacterial vaginosis), UTIs, and STIs. - Type 2 is also associated with a lower risk of other health conditions such as infertility, #Pelvic inflammatory disease, neonatal issues, and TSS.
  • [#Normal Vaginal condition, #Vaginal microbiota] - Type 3 CST is dominated by #Lactobacillus iners, but it can coexist with both healthy and disruptive bacteria. - If found with disruptive bacteria, it can cause symptoms like itching and abnormal discharge. - When found with protective lactobacilli, it’s neutral or even protective. - Type 3 has two subtypes: 3-A and 3-B. - The main difference is that 3-A has more L. iners.
