Abstract: Aim-The status of vaginal lactobacillary flora, an indicator of possible genital infection and pregnancy complications, can be assessed on wet mount or Gram stained specimens. The former is quick, the latter more routine. The accuracy of the two preparative techniques to detect normal vaginal lactobacillary microflora was compared for 646 patients. The effect of delay in transport medium before Gram staining was also investigated.
