Can BV cause chlamydia? I am uncircumcised and I've had unprotected sex with girlfriend that had PV. We have no other sexual partners.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: NO

BV is a different infection entirely.
It used to be called gardnerella vaginalis. It is a mixed bacterial infection that results usually in a fishy discharge for the woman. While it is much more common in sexually active women, it is not an STD likely chlamydia.
