An abstract of the article "A Longitudinal Study of the Vaginal Flora During the Menstrual Cycle of Healthy Female Volunteers" is presented. Daily vaginal samples were taken and recorded on a diary card along with any genital symptoms, sexual activity and contraceptions used. Data suggest that in some women hormonal changes could have a role in the pathogenesis of bacterial vaginosis.
