Is it ok to have oral sex if I have bacterial vaginosis?

Yes. Technically it is ok, but you should see your doctor asap for evaluation and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis causes a foamy brown vaginal discharge with a very unpleasant "fishy" odor. Sexual activity might not be so pleasant with this disease.
