In brief: Possibly

Bv is treatable with antibiotics.
Two different antibiotics are recommended as treatment for bv: Metronidazole or clindamycin. Either can be used with non-pregnant or pregnant women, but the recommended dosages differ. Ciprofloxacin may not be effective in managing the most common causative organisms of this condition, but some doctors will prescribe this.
