Bacterial Vaginosis is a very common vaginal infection that one in three women will get at some point during their lives. Bacterial Vaginosis is caused when the vagina is overwhelmed with bad bacteria, a perfectly normal healthy vagina has bacteria too.
In this study Cohen and his colleagues discovered that men whose female partner had bacterial vaginosis 3 months before identifying HIV-1 seroconversion and at the same visit had an increased incidence of HIV-1 compared with men whose female partners had normal vaginal flora. Also, the data have been convincing that the state of the vaginal microenvironment is significant in determining the risk of HIV heterosexual transmission from men to women. In fact it has been established by several investigators that bacterial vaginosis (BV) increases the risk HIV infection by ~1.6-fold.
