PTL is the most common cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality in the world. PTL early in pregnancy is more likely due to infection. Antibiotic prophylaxis during the second or third trimester of pregnancy is effective in reducing risk of PTL in pregnant women with bacterial vaginosis (BV) in the current pregnancy, pre-labour rupture of membranes, postpartum endometritis. Limited data showed that routine use of antibiotics during pregnancy might prevent infectious morbidity for the mother, but could not reduce neonatal morbidity and mortality. Prophylactic antibiotics is not indicated for previous PTL of unknown aetiology but for abnormal genital tract microflora detected in current pregnancy. BV is more likely to respond to oral clindamycin than metronidazole.
