Methods: Hospital based observational study. The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, SMS Medical College, Jaipur, Rajasthan.

Results: In the present study 75.30% women had history of previous one abortion. Among them 25% women had BV. Women who had prior history of two or three and more than three abortions had BV in 40% and 40% proportion subsequently.
