This is a question better suited for the STD community, they'll be able to explain this in depth there.

Bacterial vaginosis is not considered to be an STD.  It is an overgrowth of the "bad" bacteria in the normal vaginal flora.  It is possible to have sex and not transmit BV.
Good luck,

Coccobacilli is an STD though, so it is best to take this question over to the STD board.
