3. Unprotected Anal Sex
Bacterial vaginosis is considered a routine infection just like a yeast or urinary tract infection: It’s one most common types of vaginal infections out there, and there are thousands of people out there who might have picked up one of these infections without knowing it.
Of these thousands, many might be too self-conscious or embarrassed about it to go to a doctor (or might not show any visible, obvious symptoms of the condition) and this increases the potential risk of them spreading the condition to others.
Just because it’s not a traditional STD doesn’t mean that sex can’t help spread the condition around. Unprotected anal, oral and vaginal sex are some of the ways in which you can increase your risk of contracting BD, particularly if you’ve had unprotected sex with a woman who has it.
Always take the necessary precautions when having sex, particularly when you’re having sex with multiple partners. At the first sign of symptoms, stop having sex and be tested to make sure what kind of infection you have.
