Bacterial Vaginosis: Screening in Pregnant Women at High Risk for Preterm Delivery

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for bacterial vaginosis in asymptomatic pregnant women who are at high risk for preterm delivery. This is an I statement, which means evidence is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting, and the balance of benefits and harms cannot be determined.
