Vaginosis, or vaginal inflammation, can result in discharge, itching, and pain. An infection or a change in the balance of vaginal bacteria is frequently the cause. This condition, which can harm the unborn child if untreated, can be brought on by pregnancy. This investigation aims to determine whether the sexually transmitted diseases bacteria Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma genitalia are present. 15 of the 100 pregnant women who had antenatal care and had vaginal swabs obtained had vaginitis. The Multiplex PCR was then examined. The data were analysed using a descriptive statistical method after data collection. This research did not uncover any Mycoplasma genitalia, but 8 out of 15 vaginal swabs from moms did contain Ureaplasma urealyticum. Along with Ureaplasma urealyticum, the mother's swab they also revealed the bacteria that causes STIs. Diagnosing and treating mycoplasma and ureaplasma as soon as feasible is essential.
