Expert Q & A Answers About bacterial vaginosis treatment

What is bacterial vaginosis? Is bacterial vaginosis an STD?

After a regular Pap smear at my gynecologist's office, I found out I have an infection called gardenella (bacterial vaginosis). What is it? Is it an STD? I don’t want my husband to get this infection...is that even possible? My husband doesn’t show any signs, but I’m still nervous! Thank you.
