Vulvovaginitis is more common problem of pregnant women that challenges the gynaecologist. It is an inflammatory condition of the vulva and vagina and characterized by vaginal discharge, pain & itching in external genital organs. Various pathogens are responsible for this condition such as bacteria, parasite, mycotic and virus. Any infection in birth canal may cause premature rupture of membrane and preterm labour resulting in pregnancy loss. Diagnosis is made on the basis of clinical features and presence of pathogens in wet slide study and vaginal swab culture. Treatment depends upon the causative organisms with systemic or local drugs.
