BV infection. On antibiotics, symptoms disappeared. Safe to have sex without worrying about STDs?

On July 11th I went to the doctor because I was experiencing usual discharge and I was told I had BV . So I got prescribe medicine and took it for a week and finished the perscription and my symtoms are gone. but my boyfriend doesn t want to have no sexual contact with me because of what I had. So my question is is it safe to have sex again? Could he get anything after I got treated? We been together for ten years and been faithful. He thinks if having sex with me again he will get a STD or something. Please help me

Hi and welcome to HCM.Thanks for the query.
Bacterial vaginosis istn actually something that can cause symptomatic infection in men even if this isnt treated is not real std . So you can have safe sex and you should discuss it with him. you can also use condoms for next sseveral weeks if he doesnt trust to you and me. But as I said,sex is safe and it cant cause infection in men.
Wish you good health. Regards
