Thanks for writing to us.
A persistent vaginal infection can aggravate a preterm labor pains and may cause an infection of the baby during the second stage of labor. Antibiotic treatment at this stage may also be harmful. A careful assessment by your gynecologist is needed regarding further treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
