Aim: The present investigation was conducted over a span of three months, with the primary objective of identifying and characterizing the bacterial pathogens that trigger vaginal infections in females.

Methodology: From Hospital 55, female patients afflicted with vaginal infections were chosen, and samples were collected by means of vaginal swabs. The bacterial species present in the collected samples were identified using a combination of biochemical and agricultural tests. The growth of bacterial colonies was analyzed using agricultural and gram staining, as well as through microscopy and biochemical tests.

Results: The results indicated that among the 55 vaginal inflammatory patient samples, Staphylococcus species was responsible for the majority (53%) of the infections, followed by Klebsiella (38%), Escherichia coli (7%), and Neisseria (2%). Additionally, the susceptibility of these bacterial pathogens to seven antibiotics, namely Tetracycline, Penicillin, Ampicillin, Norfloxacin, Chloramphenicol, Gentamicin, and Streptomycin, was determined. The findings demonstrated that Chloramphenicol was found to be 100% effective in treating the bacterial species. These findings can be utilized to develop personalized treatment regimens for vaginal infections, which could lead to improved management of this condition in women.
