Gardnerella Vaginalis Urine Test

About this test

Gardnerella Vaginalis is an infection of the female genital tract by bacteria of the Gardnerella vaginalis strain, often in combination with various anaerobic bacteria. Gardnerella Vaginalis is also known as bacterial vaginosis. The most common complaint of women who first notice a problem is a vaginal odour that can be described as musty, "fishy" or pungent. The odour may occur at any time and be noted in secretions on underwear.

Women with a Gardnerella infection may notice a vaginal discharge. The discharge will seem sticky white or gray in colour. Sometimes a Gardnerella infection produces a vaginal irritation or itching that's noticeable, particularly after sexual intercourse or during the menstrual period. However, some women never notice this symptom - in many cases women are unaware of a Gardnerella infection.

Gardnerella infections are not normally serious. They may not cause symptoms or the infection can disappear on its own without the woman being aware she even had it. However, there have been indications that the infection may increase the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, ectopic pregnancies, premature births or babies with a low birth weight. For this reason, pregnant women, in particular, should be tested for infection. In addition, the bacterial infection may also increase the risk of being infected, or infecting a partner, with a sexually-transmitted disease such as HIV, gonorrhoea, herpes simplex virus or chlamydia.

Testing through the NHS or your GP can take up to 2 weeks and details will always stay on your medical records. Our service is 100% private and confidential.
