According to various authors, the frequency of preterm labor is from 5 to 12% per year and tends to increase over the past 20 years. Despite the constant improvement of knowledge about the causes and mechanisms of preterm birth, the world still cannot cope with the problem of premature birth, which has a much greater range of uncertainty. One of the most compelling reasons in the development of PR is cervico-vaginal infection refers to a vaginal dysbiosis. Dysbiosis of the vagina is one of the most frequent infectious diseases among women of fertile age. One of the reasons for the development of vaginal dysbiosis is the lack of anatomical relations between components of the pelvic diaphragm, which can occur during normal labor and childbirth with visible and invisible injuries of the perineum. Given the increasing frequency of preterm birth and perineal trauma in childbirth, identifying cause-and-effect relationship in this matter is relevant and pending for the moment.
