Vitamin D and parathyroid hormone (PTH)play essential role to maintarn homeostasis of calcium and phosphate .The present study was designed to investigate the effects of PTH and Vit-D on incidence of bacterial vaginosis(BV) during first trimester of pregnancy. A total number of women that recruited in this study was ninety (90) women, of those, 50 women were affected with BV and forty (40) were healthy women and used as control group . All ages of tested women (patient and healthy were ranged between 16 to 45 years old , and they divided in to three groups (16 -25 , 26 -35 , and 36 -45 years old ) Data obtained from the present study indicated That women with B.V and their ages ranged between 16 -25 recorded high percentage ratio (50%) compared to other ageg group of concerning levels of vit-D, it is well documented that women who have B.V pointed out a significant decrease (p<0.01)in the levels of vit-D when they compared with their counterparts of control groups. Inversly, a significant increase (p<0.05) in the levels of PTH of women affected with B.V compared to those with out B.V, as well as, it was found a significant (p<0.01) negative correlation between levels of vit-D and PTH in women infected with B.V. From data confirmed a bove, one can be concluded that a drop of Vit-D during pregnancy triggers the activity of a opportunistic bacteria causing BV
