Abstract

Few data exist regarding management strategies for women with early treatment failure for bacterial vaginosis. Cure rates after re-treatment were compared for two topical agents. The overall cure rate was 62%; rates between medications were comparable. Re-treatment with the same topical medication for early recurrence is an acceptable strategy.
