Bacterial vaginosis is normally diagnosed by physical exam or immediate microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Health care providers don't normally use a sendout test to diagnose this vaginal imbalance.

Bacterial vaginosis should your partner take antibiotics too?

Bacterial vaginosis isn't an infection in the true sense of the word; it's when there is an imbalance of the normal bacteria that should be found in the vagina, and an overgrowth of bacteria that are normally found in low numbers. Your partner can't "catch" it. There is no evidence that treating a partner prevents recurrence in the patient.

Does a history of chlamydia increase the risk of bacterial vaginosis?

A history or even current infection with chlamydia does not increase the risk of bacterial vaginosis. BV results from an imbalance in the vaginal discharge when the "good" bacteria die off and the "bad" bacteria take over. It's not spread by sex, but exposure to semen can increase the risk by changing the vaginal pH.
