1 doctor agrees
In brief: No
Bacterial vaginosis (bv) is not associated with heart problems.
It can increase the risk of getting other sexually transmitted diseases, including gonorrhea and hiv. It can increase the rsik of infection after procedures/surgery of the pelvis, and can increase the risk of complications during pregnancy. Chlamydial infections, another std, have been linked to an increase in heart disease, however.
