It is used for 2 main conditions, Trichomonas (probably spelled wrong aka the Trich) and a kinda broadly defined condition called Bacterial Vaginosis, this is a condition where one of 6 or 7 bacteria in the vagina overgrows and takes over leaving the correct balance out of whack. Flagyl also treats amoebic dissintery and certain other infections, particularly diverticulitis and oral infections.
