2. Unprotected Oral Sex
Unprotected sex isn’t the only sexual act that might put you at an automatically increased risk of developing bacterial vaginosis. Sometimes unprotected oral sex can also increase your risk of contracting bacterial vaginosis – and even though it won’t show any of the same symptoms, BV is a type of bacteria that can easily be carried in the mouth and subsequently transmitted through genital-oral contact.
The more sexual partners included in this list, the higher your risk of contracting or spreading as a condition like bacterial vaginosis as a result even though BV isn’t considered to be a sexually transmitted disease or infection.
At the first signs of a condition like BV, cease all unprotected sex until the condition has been diagnosed and treated, and the symptoms have subsided. Also remember that bacterial vaginosis isn’t the only condition that can be spread this way, and other conditions might have similar symptoms.
