probably that it cant be transmitted to the partner... associated with sexual activity meaning greater chances of acquiring the infection because of incresed bacterial entrance into genital tract... kind of like honeymoon cystitis except thats in urinary tract

Info

Well, if memory serves me well, Gardenerella Vaginalis is NOT an infection by a transmitted organism.
It's about a change in the vaginal bacterial flora with increase of certain strains and decrease of others (there's NO inflammation).

So, sexual activity might play a part in that change. BUT the bacterium itself is not sexually transmitted.
