The article presents an abstract of the article "Sex, Thrush and Bacterial Vaginosis," by P. E. Hay, A. Ugwumadu and J. Chowns. Results show that, in most women, bacterial vaginosis (BV) resolved after 3-4 days' treatment and relapse could occur within a few days. BV did not develop within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It has also been observed that BV occurred after thrush had developed.
