Quite often, women are assigned such a procedure, bacteriological sowing of the cervical canal, but not all know what it is.
Under this procedure understand the nature of the microbiological examination, in which the material for it is taken directly from the cervical canal. Such a study helps to obtain reliable information about the microflora of the genital organs, and set the type of the causative agent of a disease. Therefore, the analysis for the sowing of the cervical canal is appointed in infectious diseases of the reproductive system in the first place.
How is the fence material?
Before carried out such a procedure, warn the woman about the need for toilet of external genital organs. If she is undergoing treatment for any gynecological diseases, and bacterial culture of the cervical canal is performed in order to assess the success of the ongoing therapeutic process, then, 24 hours before the time of collection of the material cancels the holding of douches.

As for the rates, they are the following:
- the number of lactobacilli in the microflora of not less than 107;
- the content of enterokokkov — not more than 102;
- Escherichia coli — 102;
- yeast (fungus) to 102 CFU/ml.
After the results obtained is assigned the necessary treatment. Quite often this method is used to determine the degree of sensitivity of pathogens to different antibiotics, which helps to precisely identify the causative agent.
