dc.description.abstractThe best way to prevent recurrent bacterial vaginosis is to treat the initial episode with the most effective regimen. Metronidazole (500 mg orally twice daily for 7 days) has the lowest recurrence rate among antimicrobial regimens for bacterial vaginosis (20% vs 34%-50% for other agents) (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A). Women should be treated if they are symptomatic (SOR: A), undergoing gynecologic surgery (SOR: B), or at risk for preterm labor (SOR: B).eng
