Brief Answer:
hi and welcome

Detailed Answer:
It can cure bacterial stds such as clamydia or gonnorhea but it wont cure viral and parasite infections. BUT bactrim is not preferred antibiotic for stds because it has some side effects,it may be less efficient,so doxiciclin or azitromicin should be used.wish you good health,regards

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever
