.......Your Piece of Mind is Our Goal -Watch Dr.Arani,M.D expert input on Fox News


BV (Bacterial Vaginosis) means that the vagina is infected with bacteria. It is one of the most challenging issue in women health considering diagnosis and treatment. It is easily misunderstood as a "yeast infection" self-diagnose by women and therefore is prone to wrongful self-treatment.


BV, Fungal, Parasite Testing &

Evaluations Today


Bacterial Vaginosis is common infection in mutliple sexula partners, so the presence of STDs must always be considered. We commonly see patients in our clinic who complain of vaginal discomfort and have been using intra vaginal cream and medicine without effect. They mostly get self treated for a yeast infection which does not effect the bacteria. We also see many patients complaining of recurring symptoms.



Doctor must obtain a complete patient history, perform a physical exam, and obtain appropriate samples for testing.

We evaluate test and treat patients with bacterial vaginosis with a high success rate. This success is based on the fact that we always do a complete work up and we pay close attention to the sexual partners role in symptomatic patients. We always consider treating both partners. Multifactorial possibilities for BV make it challenging to treat. For example, if you have trichomonas then it does not mean that you do not have other bacteria! If you just get treated for trichomonas you may feel better but not 100% and you may still have symptoms if you have a coinfection with other organisms.

Not much is known as to how women get BV, however, we do know that those who have never had sexual intercourse are rarely affected. So important question is that if it is a STD? Could your boyfriend could give you BV if his ex was infected? If partner needs to get treated if he does not have any symptom? Further studies and research may be needed to answer similar questions.


STD and bacterial Vaginosis

It is conterversial among doctors if to call BV (Bacterial Vaginosis ) STD or not. In my opinion It is highly related to sexual contact and I will explain why:

We do know that you do not get BV from bedding, toilet seats, swimming pools, or from touching objects. It is still not clear what role sexual activity plays in the development of BV. A virgin girl usually does not get BV but BV is common in multiple sexual partners or with women who date men whom have multiple partners. The prevelance seems to increase with sexual contacts.




Symptoms of BV (could be one or more of following)


Vaginal discharge



Burning during urination

Vaginal tingling

Or according to CDC “no symptoms at all”


Testing and Diagnosis (why we are different)


The gold standard testing for Bacterial Vaginosis is direct Microscopic study (Gram Stain / wet mount). Cultures or Pap smears which are routinely performed are not a truly effective diagnostic test for BV. Please refer to CDC guidelines for further information. Direct microscopic study requires special laboratory licensing, quality control, proficient testing, and above all expertise. As a result, not many physicians or clinics are able to perform direct microscopy such as gram stain and they are limited to other methods. We have a variety of options in our center to choose from when it comes to Bacterial Vaginosis evaluations including gold standard microscopic testing.



Complications of BV if Left Untreated

1 - Pelvic Inflammatory Disease with ultimate infertility

2 - Susceptibility to HIV infection

3 - Susceptibility to other STDs, such as Gonorrhea & Chlamydia



How To Prevent BV

Be abstinent.

Limit the number of partners.

Do not douche.

Use all of the medicine prescribed for treatment of BV, although the signs and symptoms may have gone away.



BV is the effect and not the cause. Effective treatment depends on diagnosis, diagnosis and diagnosis. Not every patient is the same. The right antibiotic and treatment duration with possible life style changes could possibly be recommended by a doctor after the cause is uncovered.




Trichomonas is parasitic infection and not a bacteria so in the topic of BV might create confusion but many times patient with bacterial vaginosis have Trichomonas ,so clinician must always keep Trichomonas in mind when evaluating patient with vaginitis. Testing for this infection might be challenging because of missing and false negative study. Please refer to our Trichomonas page for information



Confidential Exam, Test, Accurate Result & Treatment Available Today

If you are concerned about sexually transmitted diseases, or if you have had sexual relations with an infected or high-risk individual, then you should see a medical doctor and be tested. The tests need to be ordered and interpreted by an experienced physician only. Since the test is only a part of the diagnosis,the actual examination is the most important factor for STD evaluation, which is why seeing an experienced doctor is so important for you. Just a positive or negative test result by an online testing places - does not necessarily mean that you do or do not have STD. We have seen many patients in our Clinic with negative Gonorrhea and Chlamydia test results by an outside lab, who still have symptoms of urethral discomfort or tingling. There are other bacteria transmitted through sex, so just checking Chlamydia & Gonorrhea does not prove that that there is no other bacterial infection if you have symptom.STD testing is not that straight-forward. For example, there are different types of Chlamydia(LGV, Trachomatis, L, D-K ) and many different tests (blood, antibody, swab, urine,DNA, DFA) from different sources (urethra, vaginal, urine, eye, anus, throat) that an experienced doctor could choose depending on your history, examination and your concern.Practice safe sex and always discuss sexual health mater with your partner.





Oral Sex and Bacterial Vaginosis,

NGU is Common Oral Sex STD

You may also contract STD by oral sex. Many bacterias and viruses could get transmitted by oral fluid exchange or direct mucosal contact (deep french kiss) such as Gonorrhea, Chlamydia , Syphilis, etc. Oral sex raises the risk of a common STD called NGU. We are glad to announce that our lab is now capable to test NGU as well.



Partner At Risk

We will help you in this matter and explain the course of treatment. Many times we consider to treat patient's partner to prevent recurrent BV. We will facilitate this most challenging aspect of STD.

(The following patients were seen recently in our clinic, and are just some examples of numerous other similar praises.)


" I flew 3000 miles to see Dr.Arani, he was only doctor that identified my condition, more importantly he was very sincere during this ordeal".

J.R   Florida


My visit to your office in March 2009 was everything I expected and more. Yourself and your staff were very professional, friendly, and answered all my questions and concerns completely which made my travel from New York to California 100% perfect. Matt, S New York


After being declared HIV positive by one of the world’s most renowned medical institutions, I came to your lab for a second opinion. Within 30 minutes, you were able to administer and return the results of an FDA approved test that showed that the original lab had made a mistake. After a week, the original lab called to tell me that I was in fact HIV negative and that they had made a mistake. The piece of mind your facility provided was crucial in helping me get through one of the most difficult weeks of my life.

Nic, Los Angeles CA 11/18/2008


".... I had over 50 warts :-/ ..After a few treatments, I've finally gained my self confidence back. It's a pretty embarrassing thing to have, but I'll have to say that Dr. Arani made me feel very comfortable in office from day 1. The removal of the warts healed quickly and after a few months could not even tell that I had even had them. Just ask to see his before and after photos. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends (although this ailment is not something I'm vocal about) so instead I'm happy to let others know on here that he is a great doctor, will make you feel very comfortable and help get things back to normal for you. My advice would be to see him at the first sign of anything such as these warts. I would have saved a lot of $$ & time had I gone in after the 1st wart showed." 


"Thank you for giving me all of the test and explanations ....I looked on the internet for other centers. There are labs, but none had a doctor." T. Braz California


"Today I went for my final test for my Hiv and STD test. It was negative. It had been over a year since the last risk encounter. It had been a worst year in my whole life. Fortunately, I found Dr. Arani and he helped me through this horrible year. So as all the nurses in this clinic had been a great support for me. He is not only my doctor, but my friend and my psychiatrist.

I would like to have all my thank to Dr. Arani and nurses. 100% recommend to everyone who need an excellent Infectious Disease Specialist who is more than just doctor, but friend"

L.J Los Angeles, California
