Bacterial vaginitis

Hi have any of you had BV? I got it and went to the doctor and got tested for all STIs because I thought I’d had herpes. She said I was negative for everything but BV and gave me the medication to treat it and it went away. This was in late October/early November. Then I went to visit my boyfriend for the holidays. He just texted me and says he thinks he has herpes now and I’m just wondering if it’s possible the BV somehow transmitted to him since it looks like herpes.
