Four hundred high vaginal swabs were taken from patients attending gynaecology and obstetrics department of Govt. medical college, Amritsar. The patients were divided into four groups i.e. women in pregnancy (Group I), in labour/post partum (Group II), with abnormal vaginal discharge or bacterial vaginosis (Group III) and asymptomatic women as control (Group IV). Anaerobic culture of vaginal swabs revealed that out of 400 cases, 212(53%) were culture positive. Maximum isolation of anaerobes was in group III (84%) followed by group II (56%), group I (36%) and control group (15%). Gram positive anaerobes (69.2%) out numbered gram negatives (30.8%). Among various isolates Peptostreptococcus spp. and Bacteroides spp. were predominant.
