In brief: Bcterial Vginosis
Even thogh multiple sex partners and douching frequently can cause bacterial vaginal infection more frequently.
Having said that, you can get bacterial vaginosis without multiple sex partners.Bcterial vaginal infection happens when normal healthy bacteria in vagina are replaced by the unfriendly bacteria and it start growing and cause the infection.
