Anaerobic Vaginosis

Anaerobic vaginosis can be detected with a pap smear along with HPV. Normally, all women have a small number of bacteria in the vagina. When micro-aerobic, CO2-dependent, and other bacteria mix and grow in numbers, they interfere with the normal flora of the vagina and cause this condition.
