It could treat several things that are included as causes for bacterial vaginosis, and also a protozonal infection nick named the Trich, for trichomoanas I spelled that wrong, but it is close to that spelling. Taking 4 pills at once can make it a fast fix, but will likely leave the patient very nauseated with a metallic taste in their mouth. Bv or bacterial vaginosis is causes by one or more of 5 to 7 bacteria, or the trich protozoan. It is simply an overgrowth of the wrong type of bacteria, sometimes it occurs naturally and sometimes it is caused by hormone shifts. Trich is spread thru sexual contact, but can be spread if a person were to try on a bathing suit after someone had it on that had trich and the bathing suit was not sanitzed by washing it, There are probably a few other instances where no sexual contact occured but it was spread, but mainly trich is spread thru sexual contact. Bv does NOT have to be sexually spread.

Trich can take years to manifest as well so even when sexually transmitted it can sometimes take several years to really start causing symptoms. It is usually a sexual transmit though but like Patti said-not 100% of the time.
