In brief: Need diagnosis
Although Metronidazole (flagyl) may be helpful in some cases of bacterial vaginitis, some bacteria (aerobes) may be quite resistant.
Check with your ob/gyn, first for a specific diagnosis, and then for therapeutic recommendations. Flagyl may be helpful for trichomonas vaginitis, which is not bacterial and you may be dealing with more than a single problem. Hope you are better soon.

In brief: Ping-Pong!
If recurrence is common, and you specifically have trichomonas vaginal infection, men are a repository for this parasite.
If partner is not treated, will come back! your doctor should have brought this up as a possibility!
