Welcome to ehealthforum,
Yes, the infection is associated with increase in infertility, chorioamnionitis, premature birth, etc. You should consider requesting your doctor/gynecologist to go ahead with getting a culture sensitivity test done on the vaginal swab/smear to identify the organism and also the potent medication for its cure/eradication. Get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection and avoid having intercourse while you are on treatment course. Take the complete treatment course. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area (use of these products harms the normal bacteria of vagina and vagina becomes susceptible to infection). Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. Make sure your undergarments are washed properly and have no traces of detergent in them. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area.
Take care.
