If you feel you can trust this guy, then you can tell him. You don't have to say anything if you don't feel comfortable with the idea. A lot of women feel relieved after telling someone close, because then that person won't make assumptions as to why there is a questionable smell or odor after sex, or what ever the situation may be. I really do hope your infection clears up. It's so saddening to hear a woman suffering from a vaginal odor, it's so embarrassing, and such a blow to your self esteem .
And I definitely am not advocating that andwhatnot take this hit alone (I "came out" to my partner), but I really only see good things coming from bringing male awareness to BV.
Their moms, sisters, friends, and girlfriends have likely had it at one point or another, it does often take a debilitating
toll on a woman's self-esteem, and in the event of a breakup (or in this case, in the event of a hookup abolishment), you'll be sending an educated, hopefully more sensitive dude back out into the dating/hookup pool

You don't need to explane your self to him,he probably knows,men like to talk about this stuff with their male friends,they usually talk trash.
There are a lot of information on the internet about BV,if he looked it up,he knows exately what it is.
He is not your gynocologist so you don't need to explain your self.
You might be satisfied with the whole "she nasty her pussy stank like fish lololol" trash talk that young, ignorant men have been perpetuating for godknows how long, but I think we all deserve better.
If she hasn't told him "I have bacterial vaginosis," it's highly unlikely that homeboy has any clue what she's going through, or perhaps more importantly, how common it is.
