Pathogens of the Vagina
Gardnerellavaginalis
This bacteria is a contributor to bacterial vaginitis, a condition where the normal flora of the vagina is disrupted with overgrowth of bacteria. A change in normal bacterial flora including the reduction of lactobacillus, which may be due to the use of antibiotics or pH imbalance, allows more resistant bacteria to gain a foothold and multiply. Cases of bacterial vaginitisare more likely to occur in sexually active women between the ages of 15 to 45.

You made some good changes in reference to the pathogenesis of the organisms. The image you added for Trichomoniasis fits well to help visualize the infection (I found it useful for my poster as well). The only suggestion I would have is to give a little more detail for Gardnerellavaginalis and how the bacteria is overgrowing/why it is. But still looking good :) -ERIKA
