Abstract: Cervico-vaginal infections are one of the most common reasons for consultation in gynecology. These infections have a major impact on health. However, in the Chadian context, few studies have addressed this problem. The aim of this study was to determine the susceptibility of germs and factors associated with cervico-vaginal infections in women of childbearing age at the Mother and Child University Hospital. This was a prospective study with a longitudinal focus, which took place from October to March 2021 at the Mother and Child University Hospital in Ndjamena. Isolation and identification of strains were performed according to standard microbiology methods. The number of vaginal swabs taken in our study over a period of 6 months (October - March 2021) was 250, of which 91 cases of vaginal infections were diagnosed, representing a prevalence of 36.4%. The germs encountered were Candida albicans 41.75%, Candida spp 40.05%, Gardnerella vaginalis 12.08%, Staphylococcus spp 3.29%, and Escherichia Coli 2.19%. Candida albicans showed resistance to spiramicin 97.36% to 5fluorocytosine (5FC) 94.73% and to Amphotericime B 26 .31%. Econazole and Nystatin maintained a good sensitivity with 94.73% and 68.42% respectively. The most represented germs were Candida albicans, Candida spp and Gardnerella vaginalis. Health education of the population regarding these infections must be reinforced.
