Abstract

Objective. To investigate associations among serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D 25-OH-D, folate, omega-6-omega-3 fatty acid ratio and bacterial vaginosis BV during pregnancy. Methods. Biospecimens and data were derived from a random sample of women from the Nashville Birth Cohort. We compared mean plasma nutrient concentrations for women with and without BV during pregnancy based on Nugent score ≥7 and assessed the odds of BV for those with 25-OH-D <12 ng-mL, folate <5 ug-L, and omega-6-omega-3 ratio >15. Results. The mean plasma 25-OH-D was significantly lower among women with BV during pregnancy  ng-mL versus  ng-mL, . The adjusted odds of BV were significantly increased among pregnant women with 25-OH-D <12 ng-mL aOR 5.11, 95% CI: 1.19–21.97 and folate <5 ug-L aOR 7.06, 95% CI: 1.07–54.05. Conclusion. Vitamin D and folate deficiencies were strongly associated with BV Nugent score ≥7 during pregnancy.
