Culture methods have not been sufficient in order to resolve the complexity of the normal vaginal flora. These findings can be of help in developing new strategies for regaining and retaining the normal vaginal flora. The use of scoring to delimit normal flora, as was done in the workshop, is proposed as a prerequisite for further studies of normal vaginal flora. The major species found were L. There are numerous inhabitants, mainly anaerobic bacteria. Lactobacillus crispalusL. The ecological niche of the vagina contains a large number of different microbes that are constantly interacting with each other and the host.
The vaginal flora of most participants was dominated by a single RAPD type, but five of them harbored two RAPD types representing two different species or strains.

Linköpings universitet, Institutionen för klinisk och experimentell medicin, Genus och medicin. Vaginal Lactobacillus flora of healthy Swedish women. The major results showed discrepancies in diagnosis when there were very few lactobacilli. During the fertile years the vaginal mucosa is normally dominated by lactobacilli, a fact that has been known for over a century. The species that were found, which were similar in the two studies, were: The presence of L.
