Can you recommend a prescription for bacterialvaginosis?
Metronidazole is the most common and preferred antibiotic treatment for BV. It is available in three forms:
tablets to be taken twice a day for five to seven days
a single larger-dose tablet you take only once
a gel that you apply to your vagina once a day for five days
In most cases, metronidazole tablets taken over five to seven days are recommended.
