Hi there! I have a question about bacterial vaginosis. I had it some time ago, but after some consultations with my gynaecologist and pharmacist I used some over the counter medication and now I have almost fully cured it. But I have heard rumours that this illness increases risk of HIV and other sexually Tran missive illnesses. Is this true and if yes, what are the precautions to reduce the risk? Can I still live as I have till now or do I have to be a lot more cautious about my sexual life?
