    -The vaginal microbiota can be characterized in five Community State-Types (CST), representing different microbial groups. CST-I has a predominant abundance of L. crispatus, CST-II has L. gasseri, CST-III has L. iners, and CST-V has L. jensenii. CST-IV, on the other hand, has a reduction of Lactobacillus spp. and a higher abundance of anaerobic bacteria such as Prevotella, Atopobium, Sneathia, and Gardnerella, which have been associated with bacterial vaginosis
