Paul B. -

Great talk. Quick question...as an ED doc, if a pt presents with lower abd pain and yeast or bv is found incidentally but is asymptomatic is the recommendation not to treat?

Allison B., MD -

Great question Paul. Yes, you are correct. The current recommendation is not to treat asymptomatic vaginal yeast and bacterial vaginosis. The reason is 10-20% of patients are found to have vaginal yeast that do not cause symptoms and BV has been found to clear without treatment 25% of the time. Those who are symptomatic should be treated.
