Daily temporal dynamics of vaginal bacterial communities. (A) and (B) Women diagnosed with asymptomatic bacterial vaginosis (ABV) at some point during the ten-week period are shown. (C) to (H) women diagnosed with symptomatic bacterial vaginosis (SBV) at some point during the ten-week period are shown. (A) through (H) Color codes for each phylotype represented in the interpolated bar plots are shown next to each panel. Pink open circles indicate symptomology. Red closed circles indicate menstruation days. Large black open circles represent ABV diagnosis. Large black closed circles represent symptomatic BV diagnosis. Small closed circles indicate BV medications used. Daily Nugent scores (range: 0 to 10) and pH (range: 4 to 7) are indicated below the graphs. See Additional file 4: Figure S1 for interpolated bar plots for all subjects.
