Is bacterial vaginosis a sexually-transmitted infection?

Although bacterial vaginosis is more common in sexually active women and sometimes develops after having sex with a new partner, bacterial vaginosis is not classified as a sexually-transmitted infection (STI), as it is not passed on through sexual activity.
