Answer

Testing for other infections, such as N gonorrhoeae, C trachomatis, and herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) may be appropriate in individuals with BV because the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) may be increased in this population depending upon the risk factors and demographics.
