Time for an exam: Azithromycin treats chlamydia very well but is not effective for bacterial vaginosis. Effective therapy for BV includes Flagyl, Tinidazole, Clindamycin. At this point a doctor would definitely want to perform a vaginal exam with microscopic testing to see exactly what is going on rather than treating based upon symptoms alone.

No: azithromycin is used for chlamydia, not BV. You may need clindesse (vaginal clindamycin if flagly isn't working for you). The following increase your BV risk: unprotected anal sex, wiping back to front, use of thong underwear, and wearing underwear 24/7. You may have a chronic BV infection and may need longer treatment.
