BV: This is not considered to be a sexually transmitted disease, but there is data showing that the bacteria colonizing the skin of the penis can be those obtained from a sexual partner and transmitted back to them after treatment. If you have a partner with multiple contacts BV is the least of concerns. Make sure you are tested for all STDs.
