Spanish term or phrase: Garderella Vaginalis
I believe that this is a type of infection or condition, but have been unable to translate it into English. My wife was diagnosed and treated for this in Colombia S.A. and we have no way to explain to our US physician.

Gardnerella vaginalis:
\"The only species in the genus GARDNERELLA, and previously classed as Haemophilus vaginalis. This bacterium, also isolated from the female genital tract of healthy women, is implicated in the cause of bacterial vaginosis (VAGINOSIS, BACTERIAL). It occasionally causes postpartum bacteremia and bacteremia following a transurethral resection of the prostate.\"
http://www.diseasesdatabase.com/umlsdef.asp?glngUserChoice=5...

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is characterized by the overgrowth of certain bacteria in the vagina, including Gardnerella vaginalis, Gardneralla mobiluncus, and Mycoplasma hominis. Bacterial vaginosis is grossly underdiagnosed because many women assume they have a yeast infection and treat symptoms with over-the-counter medications.
