The women were randomly assigned into two group (30 person in each group) to receive either 250 mg vaginal tablet of vitamin C, once a day, for 6 days or 75% metronidazole vaginal gel (5 gr once a day for 5 days. Results obtained from both groups were compared for demographics features, history and baseline clinical pictures. Participants were evaluated in follow-up visits (after treatment). Results: After one week of applying of vitamin C vaginal tablets, 66.7% of cases had normal form of vaginal discharge,7 0% had negative whiff test, 40% had vaginal pH<4.5 and in 86.7% clue cell was less than 20% (p=0.0001).
