How does Metronidazole work?

A fast acting and effective antibiotic is required to assist the body. Metronidazole prevents the bacteria that cause bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas vaginalis from being able to reproduce. By inhibiting the spread of bacteria in this way, the body's immune system is able to clear infection.
